Friday, 24 August 2007 - Teenagers

Dear God:

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.

Amen.

How lovely to hear expressions of the good things in life: after living more than 3/4 of a century I spend time thinking about the good in my life; it seems to keep improving.
I hope you will visit me. Mary the Antique Sailor
