If you have had more than one lesson with me, it is very possible that it was interrupted briefly by a phone call from my daughter or my son. They are the best part of my life so I make myself available to them if they should need me.
Last year, my daughter, Brianna, graduated from college and started working at Family Promise of South Palm Beach County. She is the Transitional Housing Manager and she works with Emergency Housing Voucher recipients. The organization provides these families with case management, mental health services if needed, and assists with finding housing.
When she initially moved here from Chicago, I thought she was going to become a nurse but after the first few classes she felt like she was trying to assist with a symptom and not the deeper issue. As a result, she changed her major to social work because I had raised her with the understanding that everyone will have ups and downs and at any given moment something can happen to put someone in financial turmoil. Now she gets to be a part of the solution while also impacting the community.
Since Family Promise of South Palm Beach County is a nonprofit organization, they host fundraisers periodically and they asked if I would partner with them for Beer and Bayou which is kind of ironic since I do not drink. I agreed to donate a package of golf lessons. That's what we do for family, right? Right.
