THANKS FOR YOUR WELCOME
This is amazing! Sharon is really living on the edge. Can't believe that she recruited me to assume this responsibility. This will prove, hopefully, that you are never too old to learn something new.
I certainly will not be a replacement for her, but I do feel blessed to have an opportunity to share with her special friends. I know that you each mean so much to her.
Her Dad and I know how blessed we are to have her as a daughter. We love her so much, value her wisdom and sensitivity as as woman of God, and share you enjoyment of just knowing her.
As a young Mom, I would often look at each of our children as they were growing up and try to look past their growing years and imagine who they would be when they "grew up." As parents we often get so caught up in the day by day routines, the transitions from one stage of childhood to another, the stresses of parenting, etc. that we forget the BIG picture of where God is taking the precious children that He has blessed us with.
For those of you who are in those stages of parenting your children, let me declare to you what a blessing it has been to see each of our children blossom in to amazing adults, responsible/loving parents on their own, and now not only our children, but adults who are also our special friends.
Hope that make sense.
I will share more with you later, but for right now this will be it. Just wanted to prove that I could do this before Sharon was completely out of the loop and she could not coach me.
By the way, the picture at the top of this blog is "my man" (to use Sharon's term ) and me when we were on a business trip to Atlantis a couple of years ago. It was great fun especially since we won this trip from the company that we work with. Just wanted you to know that this man and woman love each other dearly even after 45 years of marriage.
Have a blessed week-end.
