For the past couple weeks, I have driven a back road to take my son to and from his new job. He is so excited to be beginning a new career and working to save money for his own vehicle. It's exciting for me, his mother, to see him striking out on what may be his life's work! Helping him along a bit before he gets himself settled financially is all I can do for him at this point. It's been interesting to watch him, in the evenings, review paperwork and talk with his Dad about the machine work and manufacturing and production practices. He's excited to finally become focused on a career path, taking classes in manufacturing and machining, working this new job, and making plans for his future. I think about his transformation from unsure young man to enthusiastic and gung-ho young man.
As we drive - he, on his way to another day of machine work and I, sending him on his way with hopes and prayers for his success, we watch the passing scenery. Every time I drive by this gate, I am reminded of an old George Harrison song. This afternoon, the sunshine was so bright and the sky so blue against that field that I had to stop and snap a picture. He rolled his eyes when I said we had to stop and enjoy the view (and smell the hay and roses). His mind is on other things these days; I guess this little lesson will have to wait for a bit.
It has been a while since I participated in Alyce's Saturday Snapshot photoshare, but this photo seemed right for the middle of July. What do you think? I wonder what others are posting this week? To see ... click this link and enjoy the snapshots and the stories behind them!
