Rites of Passage

So today my youngest son and his wife made an offer on their first home and it was accepted.  My middle son and his wife are in the process of building a home.  So, now, all of my children are in or will shortly be in their own homes.  Two of them are in their second homes; the two with kids.
Rites of Passage
I had not ever really thought of this before but that seems like a milestone.  In most of the cases our kids have asked what we thought about what they were doing.  That is a privilege.

So we had four kids from 1981 to 1988.  Three boys and a girl.  They are all walking with the Lord, they are all married, two have two kids each, all now have homes or will shortly be moving into theirs.  They are all professionals in that they have to be certified in for what they do; a CPA, two teachers, and a physician.  They are all active in their churches.  They are all engaged when they can be in our workshops.

It seems like yesterday we were in diapers and my oldest was crawling around under the desks in my office playing hide and seek.

The point of all this is that we essentially had them from 1981 to 2009, 28 years.  That is all we got to set them on a path.  You will not have much more than that.  It was chaos.  It was at times really hard.  There were many short nights.

You do not have long.  You have to be intentional or the milestones will pass and you will wonder why you weren’t.
