sweet seventeen

Yesterday I bumped into an old friend at the deli counter of a local grocery store. She and her husband worked with the UMC youth group where I went off and on during high school. We hadn’t seen each other in many years so we exchanged the usual life details. She looked absolutely shocked when I said our daughter is a junior and our son is a freshman.

Honestly, it is a little shocking to me too. When did it happen that our little roly-poly toddlers turned into a lady and gentleman? Each stage has been fun - frightening sometimes but definitely fun too.

The young lady pictured here is talking about going away to college the year after next. Sometimes, that can’t get here soon enough. Other times, I dread the thought. She is lovely inside and out, humorous, artistic, opinionated, mostly hard working, extremely determined, adventuresome as long as a friend comes along, very tender hearted, creative, and more independent in her mind than mine. It was her seventeenth birthday yesterday and I think she is amazing.


  • I think she is wonderful too. I'm looking forward to getting to know her more at Girls Camp this summer. What a blessing!
