It’s Official…I Have A Teenager!

You see that handsom dude that’s standing to my right (when looking at the computer)?  That’s my oldest son and yesterday he turned THIRTEEN!!!  Which means I am now the mom of a TEENAGER!  Where in the world did time go to?

It seems like just yesterday he was born and I was holding him in one arm, now he is entering into some of the most influential years of his life.  I am so thankful that God chose this precious boy to be my son.  I pray that as he goes into the teen years, God will really take a hold of his heart and life.  I hope he and I can have the open relationship that my mom had.

Happy Birthday (yesterday) Gabriel!!

    WOW, he deserves a grand birthday. He’s at a pivotal age, keep his friends really close for now on, so you know if there is unhealthy peer influence. Wish my husband would have listened to me about my step-son. He had the wrong friends, believe me, very wrong friends back then.
