As it is no secret, we’ve had some major obstacles, speed bumps, road blocks, stalemates, standoffs, and stumbling blocks on this pilgrimage to raise adults. At times it has taken great faith, prayers, and hope to trick myself into seeing the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel – But wait…my eyes, my heart, and my head definitely saw a flare fly across that gymnasium Thursday night.
We have challenged his teenage groove in a manner that has shook us all to the core. Of course he’s angry at us, of course he doesn’t understand why we’re doing what we’re doing, and of course he doesn’t like our parental expectations.
So what I expected to see, hear, and feel that night was teenage vexation.
But what we got instead was respect.
Obviously our journey through the teenage jungle continues, but boy, oh boy…it sure was nice to see that wonderful glimpse of the great man he is becoming.
Love you, Babe. Nice playing Thursday night.
