Today, I am thankful for teenagers.
Don't laugh at a youth for his affectations; he is only trying on one face after another to find a face of his own. ~Logan Pearsall Smith
Hayden, Robert, Ryan, Ian, Everett, Jamell and their buddies ... teenagers in our immediate neighborhood who still treat S, T and I as friends and confidants. We try to stay involved in their busy lives, a goal that's much harder to achieve as they become more and more independent.
Still, each knows that we are here for them. A ride home. The spare key. Homework challenges. College questions. More life lessons. Whatever. Whenever.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
