15 Years

Today is the day 15 years ago I became a mother.

 

My now 15 year old son started high school this year. He has friends, is playing football, as of tonight he is pulling close to a 3.0 GPA and has officially starting saving for a car. I am so proud of my boy.

I am having mixed feelings about my kids growing up. When they were born I thought about the future. I saw mom's at church with older kids and remember feeling like that day was SO far away. I carried my newborn around in his car seat all bundled up, stepped over hot wheels, bought batteries for the baby swing, but high school seemed like it was and would always be just a dream. Now it is here. The reality is, I am now the mom with older kids. I am so excited to see my son succeeding and becoming a man but at the same I am sad to think that in just 3 short years he will actually be a man and not my little boy. 

Life sure is a crazy thing!

Believe... Prayer Works!

Wishing your son a very happy 15th birthday! And congrats to him, and to you, on such a wonderful young man and awesome grades.

I hear what you are saying about seeming so far off; my son is a senior this year and looking forward to college next year. It does go by so fast, I remember people saying that when he was little, but never really realized how fast it would go.

May the Lord continue to bless you and your family.

Tim
