However, a year ago, I was privileged to meet four individuals in that age range. Paul, Deidre, Patrick and Jamie.
Before the night was over, I knew and secretly hoped that I would see them again. I have, many, many enjoyable times.
We have heard and seen good and great music. We have traveled by train from LA to Seattle and back both enjoying the ride, the food, the scenery and the music. We've had delicious dining out and home cooked meals together as well. I certainly always look forward to seeing each and every one of them.
It has been very interesting to see this generation from up close and personal. To see their determination in their careers and in their personal lives. They are kind, compassionate and smart. I always get a hug from Deidre and Jamie............some times even from Paul and Patrick. How wonderful is that?
Paul and Patrick are the sons of my friend Bob. Both are in their 30's. Deidre and Jamie are in their late 20's. Sharp, intelligent and aware of the world.
If anyone is worried about what the younger generation is going to do, about whether they are going to be upstanding citizens and take care of the World.......stop worrying. I actually wasn't worried, previously. Now I'm even more reassured.
New seasons are happening for these four. New jobs, new living arrangements and I can hardly wait to see
what happens next. Luckily, they do stay in touch!
I was thrilled that my last night in Houston we all had dinner together along with fun and good conversation.
The evening ended with hugs........from all four!
I count myself a "lucky lady" to have "The Delegates" as my friends!
