This week, my mom and I have said good-bye to several young adults – both in her exercise class and in her physical therapy. They are college students who have been interns in both places. Although we have only known them for a short time, we have been so impressed with their capabilities and aspirations. One young woman jumped in and taught the exercises classes completely after the teacher suddenly passed away. She taught for many months until they hired and trained a full-time replacement. Two of the young ladies completed studies in the group of Parkinson’s participants and gave presentations at different support groups. The results of their findings is giving direction to the class. One young man’s desire is to open his own assisted living facility to care for the elderly. They all brought energy, enthusiasm, and zeal to the sessions. We have been so grateful for their support and it was a little sad to say good-bye to them. At the same time, it was encouraging to know that they are going out in the world and pursuing careers that will make such a positive impact on people.
I Found God today in hopeful, positive young adults.
