GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
There are those moments in life you know instantly will be keepers. You know, those, “Oh man, stuff just got real” experiences that tattoo your heart.
I had one yesterday as Kyle signed his National Letter of Intent with Canisius College in Buffalo, NY.
He was among five students at Boardman High School signing early with the places they will call “home” come autumn. Wait, what?
In nine short months, my baby boy is going to be living three hours away from me?
HARD, HARD GULP.
As I listened to people discuss his accolades, I never realized how many emotions can swirl around in one’s brain simultaneously.
I was all-at-once so proud, amazed, overjoyed, humbled, grateful and terrified. #momsahotmess
To learn a whole bunch more about my instability over this latest development ... and some words of wisdom I've got for that kid of mine related to it, tune in Sunday for my column:
College Clues: Stuff that Might Come in Handy
In the meantime, here's a little snippet from all the fuss yesterday...
1 Cor 3:9c-11, 16-17 Brothers and sisters: You are God's building. According to the grace of God given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building upon it. But each one must be careful how he builds upon it, for no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there, namely, Jesus Christ. Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy that person; for the temple of God, which you are, is holy. Alleluia 2 Chr 7:16 R. Alleluia, alleluia. I have chosen and consecrated this house, says the Lord, that my name may be there forever.
