So Thankful for Zeb

1 Comment

How was it only a year ago that Zeb was still living with us, and we were toasting his 21st b-day? 


Talk about a year of change. New home (several of those), new job, new friends, new adventures, and still the same passionate heart.

As we watch you take your steps into adulthood, fixing appliances and purchasing furniture and a car, etc. it flashes us back to the first steps you took back in the day. Little did we know all the places those tiny feet would go.

We are so proud of all you have accomplished this year, Zebulon, and for the way you have tackled obstacles in your path. Hope you have a truly fabulous upcoming year. We love you and thank God you were placed in our family.


Thankful for Zebulon

Day 11/30 – Today I’m thankful for my son who was born 21 years ago today. And I’m particularly happy that he was here so we could celebrate with him. We are super proud of the man he has become, and I look forward to seeing where he goes next in life.

Zeb has a habit of doing the unexpected. When he was two or three years old, I had to tell him it wasn’t safe to do headstands in the bathtub (he didn’t hear me, though, since his head was under water). Another time he and his friend showed up on our porch to show us their “jewelry” (a bunch of snakes that they played with so regularly that they became friends/necklaces/bracelets).

From ski slope to sales to designing elements for a skate park, Zeb brings ingenuity, compassion and joy to all around him. I’m going to miss his goofiness as he takes off for his next life-adventure and already can’t wait to visit. But he’s ready to fly. I’m proud of this young man! I love you Zeb!


  • For November (the month in which we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US), I’m trying to blog about something for which I’m thankful for each day of the month.
