The clues are endless, the room, the learners permit, the attitude, the smells.
So, I don't know why I am surprised with each new first in his life.
Shayne is out tonight.
Not on a date, or with a girl.
It's just not with me, or Teri & Jay, or Aunt Nae, or Meemaw, or any adult supervision.
You see, his friend, Austin got his license yesterday.
Watching the excitement build in the last 24 hours, you'd thought they might die waiting for tonight to finally get here. The two of them, free at last. Free to drive to the mall for a quick dinner at Chic-fil-A and then a movie. Free to stop by the Sheetz for a Monster. Free from us.
No biggie, right?
As always, he is on my mind, but I will not worry.
Not just because I trust him (which I do) but more than trusting my son, I trust my Daddy. (That's God, just in case you don't call Him Daddy)
i Trust God.
I only need to keep trusting God. Shayne belongs to Him, not me anyway. (we sometimes forget that too, don't we)
But, with that in mind the pressure is off of me and raising teenagers will be a piece of cake right?
I can't hear you, a little louder.
I do love me some Shayne!
