I ran into a friend the other day and she said “Can you believe we are going to have teenagers in a few months?” (Our boys were born the same day within a few hours of each other.)

I know it is coming but I still can’t believe my sweet, baby boy is going to be a teenager this year!

I still remember the first time I held him. He was so long and skinny and with a dimple on his cheek just like mine. I was so proud and terrified at the same time. He was our first and I had become a Mom.

What a blessing he has been! He does have his moods and can be a pain at times but overall my boy is encouraging, compassionate, funny, and a great athlete.

We have spent a lot of time watching baseball, basketball, and even a few years of football. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. It fills my heart to watch him do somthing he loves.

What about you – do you have teenagers or have been through those years? Any advice for someone that is about to experience those years?

Blessings to You,


My sweet boy with his great grandfather, who he is named after.
