It is really interesting when your 18 year old child comes home for their first visit since going off to school...
I'll admit that I was worried she might feel uncomfortable...maybe a little uneasy coming home...seeing some changes, maybe not as many as she thought there might be, but still, some small changes. But she has done well with those small changes. So I have great hope for how she'll handle the big ones.
And the Lord has been so good to her...providing those people in her life that just lit up when they saw her this week. True and valuable relationships that inspire her, teach her, comfort her, and are just plain fun. Seeing her mentors love on her, talk with her, and encourage her. And she being able to share with them how she's grown and changed, what she's learned in just a few short weeks.
Life is about change. The good, the bad, the hard, and the easy.
