Happy Birthday Yesterday, Jonathan

Last night Jonathan spoke here at the Decatur church, and did an incredible job.  I am so proud of him and his family.  We have had Jennifer, Jed and Jocelyn with us since Saturday.  And it has been a treat.

Yesterday was my youngest child's (see Jonathan, above) 25th birthday!  I know, it seems cliche-ish -- but my, how time has flown!  He was the only one of our three that I actually got to be in the delivery room (actually, the operating room) during the birth.  (My, have things changed in that regard.)  I was the 1st to hold him after he was delivered.  I will never forget that moment. 
I came across this quote and can't get it off my mind.  It really changes my perspective.
"Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory."

Happy B-Day Jonathan!

Interesting quote today.

Are you watching any of the LPGA US Open? Inbee Park was one of my students. I used to play golf with her (she played on our girls team - one of Sondra's teammates). I have two of her wedges in my bag. She's an amazing young lady. Barely spoke any English, yet excelled in academics.

Jonathon did an outstanding job last night. I know you and Beverly are very proud. I just loved the way he had you being held by those guys but not sure they loved it so much.
