Occasionally I run across a family that fairly radiates glory and success. They happily share that their oldest is a patent lawyer, and their youngest is an obstetrician. I find these conversations uncomfortable because, while I don’t begrudge them their happiness, it seems as if these parents are proud of THEIR accomplishment, and bragging about THEIR success. That may sound petty, but I don’t think I am alone in this.
