Happy September to all our loyal Spotlight Magazine readers! I have wonderful news to share with all of you as we begin this month. On August 17, we were proud and happy to welcome a new grandchild to our family. Little Ethan is our ninth grandchild, and we couldn’t be more thrilled! I still find myself in awe of the wonder of new life and the reminder of how precious all life is. Just to see this sweet little baby, with his tiny fingers and toes, humbles me to no end. My wife and I realize how very fortunate we are to have eight of our nine living locally. We are truly blessed.
Speaking of my wife, here is something else that tickles me as well. Kathy called me a few weeks ago, all excited about what she would like to do for my upcoming birthday. She was thrilled to tell me that she was buying floor seats for us to go to the Keith Urban concert in Tampa in October. Here is the funny part of the story. Although I like Keith Urban, and will enjoy seeing him in concert, (I put him right up there with one of my favorites, the Electric Light Orchestra), I know, and Kathy knows, she really wants to see Mr. Urban! So my birthday seemed the perfect occasion to get us to the concert…. gotta love her! Please don’t get me wrong, I am excited about going to the concert, and this really is a wonderful gift, especially knowing how much it means to her. I am so looking forward to watching Kathy at the concert, jumping up and down and singing along. And yes, it will be a perfect birthday present for me to see her having such a wonderful time.Hmmm, I wonder what I am going to plan for her next birthday? 🙂
One final thought: who knows what journey is awaiting each of us this September? I guess we will just have to wait and see, and be open to whatever comes our way.
Until next issue, God Bless!
