10:17 am - Nathen's Post on his Dad

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I am going to direct this post to my son Nathen's blog entry for today. He wrote a touching piece about his dad that I think is well worth reading. I encourage you to read my comment as well. The post offers a little insight into how Steve operates in life and into the response of our deep and insightful son, Nathen. I was moved to tears, because Nate got it so right.

Actually I read Nathan's post yesterday from his blog and I've been thinking about it ever since. I can very much relate to this. The most interesting part of life, hands down, are the people in it. I also feel we have so much to learn from each other. Everyday to me is an adventure of who I will meet, who I get to talk to...whether I know them or not. Recently we were in a traffic jam coming home from Sacramento. We were practically at a stand still for an hour. Cars and trucks very close to us moving very slowly. None of us had anything to do but sit in our cars and wait. So I saw this as a golden opportunity to get to know some of these people. Turned out to be my favorite part of our trip.

I'm also struck by the goodness Nathen sees in his dad. And so the torch is passed to the next generation.

It's funny you say that, Jill, because the last time we were through Vegas in our motorhome, we were stuck on the freeway for about an hour in stopped traffic. Steve got out and enthusiastically visited with all the people around us (while I made us lunch in the motorhome) bringing back stories about all the "nice" stranded motorists. Some things never change. Steve will always be a "people person".

Thanks for the link, Mom. I got twice as many hits today as usual because of it.

Re: Thanks

That was lovely, and matches our experience with Steve, too. Triple thumbs up!
