a gift

Yesterday mini me asked me if I would be his confirmation sponsor! I was thrilled, and a bit surprised. I thought when a kid becomes a teenager the parent becomes stupid, and a menace. WOW! One thing I tend to struggle with from time to time is how many things change as they get older, too old to hold your hand, to embarassed to have you walk them to the door, too embarased to have you in the same location when their friends are around. Yes it's great to watch them develop, but it can sometimes hurt to see less of a reliance on you. So I'm now a Confirmation sponsor, and couldn't be prouder! God listens when you pray for stuff like continued good family relationships as the kids grow older. - and thats a GOOD thing...
