It has been hard watching my nephews and nieces grow up. In my mind they are always the little kids that I held at the hospital more than fifteen years ago, but the truth is they are turning into young adults. It has been a great journey watching them grow and helping them become the people they are today, but at the same time it is hard to believe that their time as kids is just about over.
Am I really getting that old?
The thought of being older really hit home this week when the oldest nephew, David, started his new job working in water damage restoration Malibu. One of his best friends, Dan, had taken a job working with the same company just a few months earlier, and he was the one that encouraged David to apply. They paid well, had benefits and Dan suggested that they could learn from the job over the course of a year or so and then start their own business. That really lit David’s eyes up and they have been scheming ever since as to how they will create their own company to help people recover from water damage.
I am so proud of him – I know that he can do whatever he puts his mind to.
