The Real of the Real Reason

Yesterday, I went with the family to the Colorado Children's Chorale holiday concert.

I sat in that huge auditorium with my mother and father to my left, my sister and brother-in-law on my right, and my youngest nephew on my lap while my eldest nephew performed with the chorale for the first time.

And I cried as quietly as I could, flooded with memories of watching my own son and my little sister in their childhood performances, overwhelmed with knowing I wasn't going to miss any more of those milestones with my nephews, knowing it's entirely possible I'll be watching grandchildren within the next dozen years.

So yeah -- there are lots of wonderful personal and professional things with Colorado.

But yesterday, the real reason I'm here made itself beautifully, unforgettably, heart-fillingly clear.
