that boy I have always loved so much has a full-time offer in his field

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

I was this young once. So was he.

He grew up. He went to the school of his dreams. He fell in love with a certain discipline, a subset of advertising I have yet to understand (statistics are involved, creative research, analysis and ideas), and traveled to Europe to learn more, earned three internships, kept his finger on the pulse of this thing.

Sent out resume after resume, as one does. Had nearly two dozen interviews.

Today he received an offer to do precisely what he wants to do.

There is so much dance in his voice. So much joy.

Mike Yasick, you who cared so much about this kid. Are you up there, pulling strings?

What a very bitter and very sweet week this is.

Oh, oh. Perhaps it takes another mother on the path to know exactly what this means. I do. Hats off to you, to your dear boy, to the magic and wonder of this life and growth, and all the energies at work supporting and guiding us as we travel onward. Hooray!!

Congratulations on your son's great news, Beth! It's hard to get jobs these days, let alone a job one loves. I wish him and you continued happiness.

Oh, that is just so wonderful. Your heart must be so very happy for him. And, that picture ... it made me smile just looking at it. So beautiful and such a happy memory. Time does pass so quickly, doesn't it?!

Dear friend, I am thrilled for Hs success and most of all for his ability to train for and hold on for his dream. That bodes well for later years when other interests/passions may arise. He knows how to maximize his self. May I congratulate 2 appropriately involved, unconditionally loving parents as well! XO Kathleen Malone
