Cheering Them On!

It seems the role of a MOCA (Mom of College Aged and Adults) is to be a cheer leader.  I watch, pray and cheer as the adult Gherkins streak through life.

Ladies Retreats, Campus Life Trips to Six Flags, youth trips...

Go Team Go! Your Dad and I are in the balcony cheering  you on. 

This  may be the week this one breaks the college record.....he's running this week and I'm praying. October 15 - 5:00 p.m. - Red Arroyo (off College Hills). 
Run Jamin!

This is also mid-term week for Jamin and Jared.... Jamin's last and we'll all gather in TX to cheer him on as he graduates in December!

Jared will have another mambo cardiac test....
Jared AKA as SUPER Server! 
Yep - praying and cheering and keeping watch! Gotta love technology which allowed me to shamelessly harvest all but one of these photos. When a mom can't be there - technology is the next best thing. Speaking of's a joy to be able to text, FB and call the elders.....and I did just that with most of them yesterday! Go techies!

The future looks bright with a generation like these marching out to make their mark for the King!

Go Team, GO. 
Choosing Joy!

While some of the transition is hard, it is such a blessing to see the generation heading out on their own and, as you say, making their mark for God. Last Christmas held an epiphany for me (pun intended...) I was sitting in my parents living room feeling a bit melancholy about how all the 'kids' were growing older and moving on and things were 'changing'. Then in the very next moment such joy came to me to look around that very room at the beautiful ways that things were 'changing'. Family growing, kids maturing, paths emerging, so many blessings! Hanging on to that hope as everything rushes forward... at a dizzying pace. :)
