A short post tonight…
Where does the time go? It seems like just a few days ago when my wife and I were bringing our first born home from Baptist Hospital in Nashville, TN, to our small duplex beside the railroad tracks. Today that son turns 17! I am amazed!
I am very thankful for how he has grown and matured and for the protection that he has been provided. I appreciate how he has steered clear of so many of the pitfalls that I have seen in much of the teenage culture that I have worked around for the last 25 years. I am excited about the future that awaits him and the creativity that he possesses.
Today is another reminder for me that our time together is so precious and so fleeting. My father has always reminded me that it flies by and I understand that more and more each day. As our family celebrates this Happy 17th Birthday, I hope for you a day full of reminders about the blessings of this life and the need to appreciate each and every minute.
Happy Birthday Son! I Love You!
