If y'all have been around my blog for long
then you know of my deep love for
my boy Dak.
When I first started this blog
he was a freshman in high school.
Things have changed so very much
in almost six years.
We have had many happy moments,
and many sad.
We have survived a rebellion of epic
and many ups and downs.
Today we just really like hanging out together.
This boy has grown up.
He is still a wanderer in many ways,
but I trust the LORD,
my Covenant keeping God.
Just as a way of encouragement mama's,
especially of teenagers or even tweens.....
your children really do love you.
They need you.
You may think they hate you.
They may spend a season in the wilderness,
Pray for them.
Enjoy them while they are home.
When they leave your house,
Then when they have lived some life,
with its ups and downs,
and ins and outs,
and ins and outs,
they will appreciate you.
The look in their eyes will tell you
The little, hey mom wanna have lunch.
Means the world!
Dak will always be my little boy,
but he is grown.
I respect him.
I love him.
He is my sweet, sweet son.
Here we are back in the day.
And here we were are on Tuesday.
The above picture was of obligation.
The bottom is because he loves me =)
He is the sweetest.
Silly now =)
And he plays so beautifully.
I put just a tiny snippet on Instagram
a couple nights ago.
He really started playing in earnest
after he moved from home.
Funny how that happens.
I taught him a little while he was here.
He has taught me oceans since he has moved out.
When I think of the tenderness of his heart,
and the gentleness of his music,
I could just cry.
In fact, I did on the way home.
Had me a good cry,
but with such a heart
of thankfulness to the Father
for letting me be his mom.
I just love him.
MaMa's they grow up.
Savor every moment.
Have a Blessed and Beautiful Day ~~
