My Child is Older, Yet I Refuse to Age

11256528_10207543587534052_2034265109_nThis weekend my first-born turned 20, I don’t know how it happened, because for the last 7 years I have not aged.  Time is funny like that!

After a year away in Ky, to that University that took my child, and promised to make him a man, he is home, closer to being a man, and farther away from being a child.  Unless you give him a Nurf gun, then he is a child.  He decided at this point in his life acting and production are not his hearts desire.  He is unsure of the career path he wants to take.  So while he is trying to decide, he has been living at home and taking classes at a local University.  It has been an adjustment, but we are where God wants us to be, so we will sit back and see what path his life takes.  I am sure that when he finds the ‘thing’ he will be amazing.  He is smart, and funny, he is clever and charming, he has a bright future ahead of him, for now we will wait to see where he is going.

I can’t believe that 20 years ago I was holding my first child, now he is almost an adult.  I was making plans for his future and ours as a family.  Now it is time to see the plans he is making for himself, for his future, for the man he will become.

Go hug your kids, because I was just laying in the hospital holding my newborn son with tears in my eyes and a life time to enjoy him.
