Parenting at all stages…

My first born called me last night; I immediately detected a note of excitement in his voice: “Hi Mom, I had the greatest day today!” He went on to tell me all about his first day of school- at college! He was trying to add a class, the professor had all the students anxious to get in, stand up and plead their case-why they should be selected to get into his class. Luke described how some were shy or hesitant as they presented their case…not only did Luke get in, but after class, the professor told him “you delivered a symphony!”
All parents know this feeling- when our kids make us smile and our hearts swell…Luke’s phone call propelled me back to his first smile, first steps, first day of kindergarten, learning to ride a bike…so many pictures…we love our children, grow them strong, in order to let them go, release them-so that they may go out into the world and write their own unique symphony…
