A blessing that will be remembered for many years to come. Celebrated with our closest friends, church family and a few of our immediate family members.
I remember our sons first day of school and I also remember his first day of homeschooling. We both were excited at the new adventure, yet we were also a bit nervous over what the years would bring. It wasn’t always easy as I not only prepared lesson plans for one class, but all of them. At times I felt like I had lived under a rock over my 40+ years. We learned together in most subjects and I wondered if I was doing a good job. There was always worry…. There were a few years that we put almost 100 miles a week on the car driving from sports activities, volunteering opportunities, to music lessons. I used to tell my husband that being a stay at home mom is not easy and I will not know how well I’ve done my job until our children turned 18 and I see the end result of who they become. After all, there is no evaluation at the end of each year, there is no paycheck handed to you and there are no promotions.
At this point, I weep with joy over the end of our adventure as I see a once little boy become a young man. He is first and foremost a Godly individual who wants to serve the Lord in all he does. He is polite, happy, easy going (most of the time) and he is incredibly smart. He graduated last weekend with a near 4. GPA, and he is also at a sophomore level in college. Well, I can praise God for leading us through this part of our journey between mother and son and thank Him for His glory that saw us through the difficulties. We could only have done it with the power of prayer and strength from Him whom we trust.
