Barrett cleaning fishMy oldest son spent several days with a buddy up at our lake house fishing and boating around, cooking the fish they had caught and just hanging out.  I was really proud of his independence.

However, I’m not ready for him to be completely independent, yet.

I talked to him one afternoon to tell him his dad may come up.  I wasn’t sure if he might think that his dad would be intruding.  I shouldn’t have worried.

“Good!  Dad would make it perfect, ” was his response.

What blessed parents we are to have a seventeen-year-old son who still wants us around.  My heart is full.
