There’s something about flipping the calendar to a new month or seeing that “1” on my iPad that signifies a new beginning. This beginning has a whole different feeling.
18 years ago as we were awaiting the arrival of our first born the thought of him starting his senior year of high school seemed like an eternity away and yet it has passed so quickly. He has grown up even though I keep trying to keep him little. But instead of trying to stop time I will embrace it and celebrate the young man he has become and the life he has in front of him. I will continue praying for him as he seeks to make his own way in the world and contemplates the major decisions he has to make over the next year. I will continue praying that his relationship with his Savior will continue to be the most important thing in his life and that it will continue to guide his decisions.
Tomorrow is his last first day of school and we will celebrate it as much as we did his first day of Kindergarten.
