One Father...

"One father is more than one hundred school masters."

~ George Herbert

In just one week from today, a whole new world will open up as our son has formally been accepted into an eight week course to follow in his father's & brother's footsteps, within his father's company, for a whole new incredible career opportunity to propel him forward into the future. 

"It's only when you grow up, and step back from him, or leave him for your own career and your own home -- it's only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it. Pride reinforces love." 

~ Margaret Truman

Already in nightly study sessions for the past week, including plenty of mentoring and training from his father, he'll be ahead in some aspects of the course before he actually begins. He'll have to. 

On each weekly test, he must earn 92% or higher to remain in the course for the entire duration of it before graduating and being officially welcomed and hired by the company. 

As he says goodbye to his current day job this weekend, earning while learning will assist in keeping up the financial aspects of his life. 

We are so incredibly excited for him, and praying for all good things to come in his future.

"Father taught us that opportunity and responsibility go hand in hand. I think we all act on that principle; on the basic human impulse that makes a man want to make the best of what's in him and what's been given him."

~ Laurence Rockefeller
