Our boy made the paper again. Second year in a row he’s been featured in the sports 🤼♂️ section of our local paper. Proud is an understatement, although this year he lost this match. “Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn!” Watching him lose is difficult indeed although this was such a special night. As he entered the mat, three people right behind us began discussing him by name. Little did they know his parents and grandparents sat right in front of them. The best statement was “He’s a very respectable young man.” My heart filled with pride, I turned around and said, “that’s my boy!” We discussed how they knew him. We all cheered him on. Having complete strangers confirm your child’s character means much more to me than they’ll ever realize!
What a wonderful man he is becoming. He loves Jesus, others and life. I’m grateful for this confirmation, even when he loses he does it with such GRACE!
