A Shout-out to Twenty-Somethings

When’s the last time you told someone you were proud of them?

When’s the last time you said that to an entire generation?

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while. Back in April, having just spent time with my then-21 year-old son, I wrote a song expressing both my regret at leaving him a world with so many problems to deal with in his adulthood, and my pride in his ability to do just that.

Yes, I said April. And it’s now August. But hey, I finally got that song recorded. So today’s post is going to be the words of my song, “Launched.” I couldn’t say it any better in prose.

Here’s your chance to share your own pride in the 20-somethings in your life. Tell me about them! Then go tell them how proud you are.

      • Yes, it will. I am weeks away from being the mom of a teen. He’s only an inch or two shorter than I am (and I’m fairly tall). His face has really matured in the last month or two – and I remain amazed by him. He’s silly and sensitive and deep and decent.

        Can’t wait to see what he’s becoming! =D
