She's feeling 22........Oh to be 22 again and have your whole life ahead of you! This is a big year for my daughter Brea. She will graduate with Honors from Coastal Carolina University in a few weeks and she just celebrated her 22nd Birthday! I know you all feel exactly the same way I do at every birthday and milestone of your children. The unspeakable joy and pain deep inside your heart. So much joy & pride as we watch our children accomplish great goals and grow in the LORD but so much pain to trust the LORD and let go and give them back to God for His purpose and will in their lives! Stepping into our destiny is so exciting personally but to watch someone you took care of every day of their lives step into their destiny is simply a miracle! I am forever thankful for one of my most precious gifts from God and that is my children! I have treasured every day of my life lived with my kids and my cup is full and running over with happiness! My wish for everyone is that you find your soul-mate in life and build a family together to one day release into this world for HIS glory!
Brea graduates with a Biology Degree and she plans to spend the next decade following in her parents footsteps and become a medical doctor that provides excellent healthcare to the next generation! She's been raised on green smoothies, veggie juice, organic plant-based food and chemical free everything!! She as heard every lecture I will ever give about a thousand times! (I know she will make a great doctor!)
She has worked extremely hard taking the courses needed to apply to medical school and suffered through all those science courses of genetics, physics, biochemistry and to many to count three hour labs!
As readers of my blog I invite you to celebrate with me and my family this milestone in Brea's life! I wish all of you much love & joy and be the best parent, mentor & role model you can to your own children! The world needs great parents and grand-parents so make your legacy count!
I don't strive to balance motherhood & career life. I integrate it!
My 3 goals for healthcare;
(1) reduce cost
(2) teach health strategies
(3) improve the health care family experience
