NOVEMBER 2019 THANKSGIVING GRATITUDE CHALLENGE;  Week 3, I Am a Lucky Guy with 3 great Kidscranes

I am pretty impressed with the way my kids have turned out. 

They are all high achievers with a can do spirit.

They are all paid their own way through college and have plans for a great future. 

They all held down several jobs in order to keep paying those bills while in school. All have graduated and working hard at new and productive careers.

They are all active in the Church in various ways from attending Mass to leading youth groups to working with adult religious groups.

They all grew up learning to work hard both in my business, around the home and working for others as well as doing a fair share of volunteer work.

They all grew up building confidence, and they all knew that Can’t is a word that is not allowed in the Crane household.

I am not sure what vocation they will eventually be in but I am certain that they will have happy families and  productive careers; possibly one of them will become a priest.

Hopefully some of them will eventually take over my business so that I can retire and enjoy playing with the grandchildren.

Good morning Bob. The ultimate goal is retirement and playing with your grandchildren. The bonus is one or more of them taking over your business. Enjoy your day!

Bob I have always wanted better for my kids than what I had, and it sounds you have the same values.  They seem to be well on their way to achieving that, and God willing they will.

Good morning, Bob... nothing as satifying as knowing one's kids (and grandkids, in my case) have turned out well and are productive members of society.

Beautiful post,   Bob Crane .  I can identify with you and the love and pride you have in your children.  I have 9 children, all adults. Their father whom we all loved died 30 years ago.  We have a lot to be grateful when we can live knowing our children have a close relationship with God, know love, kindness, and live responsible lives.  I wish for you and your family a very Happy  Thanksgiving.

Hello Bob - A "can do" attitude is a big asset and parents are important in shaping those young lives.  Congratulations on a great success story.
