After 34 years, my Dad retired from serving the government. His job had some “secrecy” to it, so I never got to really be that close or that informed on the specifics of his work. I know generally what he did as an Engineer, but specifically- not so much. So when my mom asked me if I wanted to fly up last minute and surprise my Dad by going to his office retirement party at John’s Grill in San Francisco, I jumped at the opportunity to meet his peer group. It was great to hear people say what he was like in the office and to hear his reputation for doing his job well. I was so glad I went. Now both Shannon and I have one parent “free of a boss”. I’m looking forward to seeing God use my Dad as he wishes with no strings attached. How fun is that.
