I have been writing this blog in my head for an entire month and it has been difficult. Looking back, just over Man-child’s high school years, I still wonder how we were able to get through it. His first girl-friend, the break-up, her being admitted in a psyc hospital, the up and down grades, sports try-out, teacher’s conferences, dances, mentoring programs, Man-child hair drama, one uncle’s death and the other being shot, invasion of the Rugrats, college visits, SAT –ACT test, college applications, proms, and finally GRADUATION. I am sure there is more that my mind cannot remember or refuses to acknowledge.
Through it all I GIVE THANKS to the CREATOR for trusting me to raise one of his sons. I THANK him for giving me strength, courage, and FAITH. I THANK him for providing me with AWESOME Sistah Friends from every corner of the United States for showering us with support, comforting words, friendship and Love. I THANK Man-child for being my son and I will continue to PRAY that he continues to mature to be an AWESOME man of God. I THANK the CREATOR for being the Almighty.
