Transition – We All Do It

Today is the last day of the summer. Why do I say that? Today is only Monday, August 13th.  Labor Day (the unofficial last day) is a few weeks away and September 21st (the official last day) is another 5 weeks away.

Well, tomorrow I pack up the car and take my son, Josh, back to college to begin his sophomore year… the summer is over! His older two sisters are living away from home. Rebecca begins her senior year in college and Katie has been married and working for the past 3 years.

The feelings are very mixed for us as parents. We love our children very much and enjoy them when they are around. But it is now time for us and them to transition. When they were younger we always wondered how they would turn out. Well, I can honestly say, they have blessed us beyond measure with the young adults they have become. We recently watched some home movies and were moved to smiles and tears. They were wonderful back then, too!

For Julie and me, it is again time for another transition ourselves. It is time to ramp up our energy and continue to reach out and build March Forth Family.  It is time to continue homeschooling our youngest, Amy, who is beginning her junior year of high school. And it’s time to be full of thanksgiving for our past, present, and future blessings.

What transition are you about to make?  Let’s make a connection here in this blog, by email, or on Facebook.
