Today is my 14 year old son’s big 8th grade class trip to DC. We got up at 4:30 a.m. and when we got to the school the big buses were rolling in.
As we stood there waiting with the group, one of the moms said her son didn’t want her to get out of the car.
I knew exactly what she meant. I can’t even sit next to my son sometimes without him scootching away. But secretly I was all happy that he asked me to come wait with him.
Just a little bit longer is all I have. Just a little bit longer and he will be on his own. I hope he knows just how proud I am of him and how much I love him.
Just a little bit longer and the dynamics of my little family will change yet again.
As parent’s sometimes we spend so much time thinking just a little bit longer, and I will have my freedom.
I think I would like things just like this not just for a little bit, but a lot longer.
Lord, please protect my son and all the kids this morning as they venture off. If there are any delays let them be devine delays. They will get there when they there.
