So proud of my  nephew.

I talked to my youngest brother a while ago and we talked of the kids. They live in Tulsa. My nephew is graduating in Architecture at the end of December. It took him only four and a half years to complete a five-year course. He usually take summer jobs and two of them offered him a job right after graduation.  Two job offers…wow!

I am so proud of him. He was offered a salary even higher than what my brother is getting.  Wow! When he qualifies after his training and apprenticeship, that might even be doubled.  Right now, he is doing some rendering and teaching autocad at the university where he is studying.

Ah, the pleasure one gets when you see your kids finish their schooling and be successful.  My niece, the oldest of the three kids is a full-pledged nurse and the youngest is studying Astronomy. According to my brother, he wants to become a scientist.

“You’re blessed and lucky“, I said. His kids are really doing well. My niece together with some of her friends in the medical field visit Haiti regularly.  She finds it fulfilling to do those missions and render help to the kids there.

My brother and I were joking. He was asking about my birthday. I told him in jest, “Don’t send me  a gift, send dollars instead”. He laughed and we were laughing over the phone like crazy. He wants to go home and take a vacation here.  I hope he does. We haven’t seen each other since Dad died.

The joys of getting in touch with family…..priceless 🙂
