Last night I took Cool Breeze to an ice cream social at the high school he will attend next fall. As hard as it was not to lead him around by the hand, I made a choice to simply stand back and watch him. Laughing with his friends, shaking hands with the football coach, chatting up the counselor.
I looked upon him with admiration. He faces the world with a confidence that few find. He likes who he is and he expects that others will too. I pray that God preserves and protects that in him.
He’s ready for this big change. He’s ready for the newness and the challenge of it all. I am too.
So here’s to the Class of Sweet ’16. May you follow God in every way seeking holiness and peace.
Love you an God bless you. You live up to your name Cool Breeze, you are our pride and joy.
