Many wonder what it's like to have both my kids and now grandkids living very far away, in my case, on the other side of the planet! That’s the risk in raising them overseas as they became very global in their orientation and visioned limitless opportunities in exploring their own careers! Thus, I travel a LOT to see them!
My firstborn Nathan, was one year old when he was taken to Hong Kong for most of the first 18 years of his life. I visited his family in Hong Kong a year ago, as they ended 7 years of life there. It’s always great to hang with them.
Last summer they moved to Chiang Mai Thailand, so of course, Nana needed to visit there as well. Nathan signed us up for Thai cooking classes which were fun! I was able to see their new home and routines as they’ve settled in there for the long term. Shannon will be on staff where the children attend Grace International School, as Nathan continues his ministry traveling to train pastors in rural parts of Southeast Asia who have minimal education.
Younger son, Jeremy, and his wife Alicia live in Philadelphia, Pa. Little Tilly has brought a lot of joy to their home! She is now a thriving toddler! Jeremy and Alicia both work and/or teach at UPenn, and in their free time enjoy hiking and exploring historical places in and around Philly. Jer just completed his Ph.D. in Positive Psych and is seen here with his mentor Marty Seligman, and Aron Beck, founder of Behavior Cognitive Therapy when they recently enjoyed lunch together.
So although we are separated by many miles, our hearts are joined together and I’m deeply grateful as mom and Nana to these wonderful dear ones!
