Yesterday my husband and I spent the day at Lipscomb University in Nashville with our son Nick. It was an orientation to college life for us as well as Nick. Nick chose to attend this school even though he had doubts at first. Lipscomb is a Christian school and learning the bible is a mandatory class here. We are Catholics living in the bible belt, a somewhat foreign concept. Lipscomb is a warm and open school with all denominations attending. It is a modern school in thinking and very progressive, Service and faith are practiced. We have taught Nick to be tolerant of others no matter what their beliefs are and always have an open mind. We hope he will soar in this environment where his ideas and thoughts will be challenged and listened to. In one short month my one and only will leave his nest....I am so excited for him to have this wonderful opportunity and yes there are tears streaming down my face.
These words were spoken yesterday and upon translation had everyone in tears.
Have a great day!
