I remember when my daughter, just a young teenager, applied for a “bagger” job at Kroger not totally sure if she wanted to do it. My goodness, look at her now, all grownup, still at Kroger and now in upper management—an executive.
I remember my son so completely into computers wanting to know how they worked and how to program them. He interned at CityBeat, then at General Electric where he has now worked for years. He turned computers into a successful livelihood.
Their personal, private lives are also happy. I think they’re both getting what they want out of this life.
I find a lot of peace and comfort in this. If you’re also a parent with grown kids, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
