My oldest son spent several days with a buddy up at our lake house fishing and boating around, cooking the fish they had caught and just hanging out. I was really proud of his independence.
However, I’m not ready for him to be completely independent, yet.
I talked to him one afternoon to tell him his dad may come up. I wasn’t sure if he might think that his dad would be intruding. I shouldn’t have worried.
“Good! Dad would make it perfect, ” was his response.
What blessed parents we are to have a seventeen-year-old son who still wants us around. My heart is full.
