“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” – Anne Shirley, in Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
One of the best things in life is discovering people who really “get” you, who think like you do, who seem to laugh at all your jokes. Anne Shirley called them kindred spirits. My son Joshua is one of those kindred spirits in my life. Unbelievably, my little boy is now almost 18 years old, and ready to graduate from high school. As he continues to become who God has made him to be, he continues to be a blessing in my life. He laughs at my jokes, he knows when I’m tired and volunteers to help, he senses when I need to be creative and encourages me. I thank God every day for him, and am excited to see the plans in store for his life.
