In a month he will be a HS graduate.
He is a born again Believer, a natural leader, calm, easy going, sincere, strong, glad-hearted, friendly.
I remember him getting into trouble as a small thing in Kindergarten or first grade because he would not.stop.humming.songs during class time.
Yesterday I was smiling all over the house as he took a long shower after school, he was singing with such gusto up there in the bathroom.
Always has music in his heart.
He is on my mind a lot lately because he is my firstborn, he is 18, he is at the end of his childhood days and about to begin the rest of his life on his own….be his own man, make his own decisions, and hopefully do his own laundry, cooking, and cleaning, too.
He and Emily are a sweet loving couple. I wonder what the future holds for them? They already speak of marriage. They get along so well, it’s the best thing in the world to watch them together. (He reads books to her!) If I find a love note on his bedside table I read it and wipe away little tears.
He is all set to attend a community college in the fall.
He still loves to talk to me and his Dad all about his experiences. Last Friday was his Senior picnic and he had a grand time all day long….rock climbing, playing football, eating lots of food, all free “I only had to pay 20 dollars!” at a wonderful park in Connecticut.
When he talks to me I see glimpses of his baby face within the man’s.
Oh what it is to be a mother. I never really knew. I dare say I still have no idea how much my heart can take.
