Wordless Wednesday | Size 14 Shoes | 18 Year Old Started College | He Feels Excited & Free

Share this article :
"What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish." Matthew 18:12-14 (NIV)

My 18 year old son started college yesterday. He is a child of God; he would not let him perish.
His face was serious, but there was a little smirk as if he was trying to hide his excitement ... No matter what his age, a mother knows these faces on her son :)

We spent Christmas together and one of his gifts were new shoes
Ripping the paper so quickly it's a blur ...

I could see all 18 years while watching him open his present.
A quick peak, but can't see the shoes through the tissue paper ...

He was happy that I bought the right size 14 shoes.
Pure excitement that mom got the right shoes ...

I was as happy to see that he liked the size 14 shoes as I was when I bought his first pair of baby basketball shoes ...
Happy because they are the right size 14 shoes ...

As the oldest brother of 3, he is an example and I can only pray that my younger sons can live up to his size 14 shoes.
This is my 18 year old son that started college yesterday (thankful to his Grandma for helping with this). He is 17 years older than our baby ... He is 5 1/2 years older than my middle son ... As the oldest child of a single mother and a boy that never got over his Grandfather's death, he has had a lot of pressure on those feet over the years and some teen issues, too ... Yet, he woke up earlier than usual and ready to go to class; he felt liberated, excited and proud.

HE FELT FREE ...

I feel so proud and grateful that he is coming around to his old self.

I can only pray that his little brothers can live up to those size 14 shoes :)




In Motherly Love,
Mother Baby Child
