When I look at my son Mark, I see a young man I am immensely proud of. He has a heart for people that humbles me. That young man is working his way through school and still pulling straight A’s. He hasn’t touched the college fund I set up for him because we always knew it just wasn’t enough. He is making it happen. He has a dry sense of humor that I love and the boy knows how to make me laugh. We are both rather nerdy in so many of the same ways that we laugh at the most obtuse things. We laugh hardest at ourselves.
When I think about his future, I see a young man who will be fulfilled. He will find that something that makes all of his efforts pay off. He may invent something amazing and useful. He may crack a new mathematical algorithm. He may write a musical score that becomes a modern classic. He may not do any of the above except find true contentment and peace in his life. I see him moving through life with a servant’s heart and lifting others above himself with all of his might. Yeah so thinking about him brings a major lump to my throat.
One day – one of those important moments may come while he is sitting at his desk.
I did my best for him. It took all I learned and practiced from my lumberjocks friends who have been pouring into me for over 2 years. Thank you my friends. Mark’s desk not only came from me, it came from you.
The details will come shortly.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
