|My kiddos plus one!|
I have been thinking about so much in the past few months and rarely share anything personal as this is a blog about creating and art. Today I am taking a moment to talk about my life and perhaps brag a little about my kids.
For those of you that don't know I do have two sons. Paul is 22 and is a music performance major at MSU in Springfield. He is a percussionist and plays everything from piano to drums. I know he is good but when I watch him perform I am amazed.
I am sure he is not going to be thrilled I have done this, but it is my right as a mom to do this!
Something else that is amazing about this young man, he has done all of this with Asperger Syndrome. If you don't know anything about this, it is high functioning autism. I was never so proud as the day he came home and announced that he was going to be more social. This is a HUGE deal. He works, goes to school, plays his video games and has a girlfriend that is very sweet to boot. Hope this is an encouragement to some.
Now a little about my other son John. Also musical and plays viola. He is hoping to take piano this summer to sharpen his skills. I think his big brother is a good influence...who knew!
|This is John and I at MSU before a football game. Of course we are there for the 1/2 time show! We are also wearing out shirts in memory of Fred Guthrie, a friend and hero!|
All of this is to say:
- I love my kids.
- I am a proud mom.
- I can't believe the talent these boys have.
- They inspire me to do my best always.
- Paul and John are my reason for being on this earth. I love you guys!
