Time flies...everyone knows that. My last post was December and it's now March. :/ And once you have kids, it's all downhill. Last week I was teaching him to ride a bike...this week, getting ready for graduation. Don't blink and don't take a minute for granted.
My boy...he's a senior this year. It makes me sad, but also so, so excited for him and what he's going to do in the future. He wants to fly. And I know he'll make his dream come true. Until then, he's been a busy senior doing all kinds of fun things. He was nominated to be in the basketball homecoming court.
My boy...loves his friends. He's laughed with them, comforted them and cried with them. He's been their friend for 13 years.
My boy...he loves his girlfriend. I asked him when I first found out a couple months ago...why? You ALMOST made it through high school without the hassle of a girlfriend, what made her different? (Because I'm a mom and I'm curious...and...well, just because. :) ) He says to me, "Mom, she's a good Christian girl"...and there you have it. What else is there to say?! And when we happen to meet her parents at a Christian function...I guess God's got plans...and she's lovely. I see so much of his daddy in him at this age and I also know that no matter how much we've struggled in the last few years, we DID do something right!
My boy...he loves Jesus. So much so that sometimes it takes my breath away. And sometimes, if you're paying attention, Jesus shows you how much he loves you!
