Something I Love

I make it no secret my admiration for the Bush family, especially George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara Pierce Bush, and their son, George W. Bush, and his wife, Laura. I think they are classy, genuine people who do so much for others. 

You may have heard that 89-year-old George H.W. Bush recently shaved his head in support for two-year-old Patrick, the son of one of his security personnel. 


Regardless of your political views, this should tug at your heartstrings. It definitely did mine. 

The former president's wife said of him in an interview with granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager: 

"You're a great, gentle man. And we certainly could use good, clean, gentlemen these days. I think the world longs for people like Gampy [his grandfather name]." 

That made me cry! And made me realize how, if we have a son, it's so important to raise him to be a good, Christian gentleman. 

Also, if you're unaware, George and Barbara's oldest daughter, Robin, passed away from leukemia in 1953, so this is a disease and cause near and dear to the Bush family's heart. 

You can read an article from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about former President Bush shaving his head in solidarity with this sweet little boy here
