The Day Has Come.

Our little boy is growing up. Today is his first day of Pre-School. He’s has been waiting for this day all summer, but still was a little nervous at the door. The school was full of moms and dads taking pictures, kids crying and laughing, and teachers getting classrooms ready.

The whole thing reminds me of the final scene of Forrest Gump, where Forrest and Forrest Jr. are sitting at the bus stop waiting for the bus. For some reason it has always been my favorite part of the movie. Here is the script:

FORREST JR.
“I’m gonna show that for show-and-
tell because grandma used to read it
to you.”

(Forrest looks at the book. The feather from the beginning of
the movie drops out of the book, unnoticed.)

FORREST
“My favorite book.”

(The bus comes to a stop. The door opens.)

FORREST
Well…

(Forrest puts the book back into Forrest Jr.’s backpack and
hands it to him.)

FORREST
“…okay. Hey, there you go.”

(Forrest Jr. walks toward the bus. Forrest stands up.)

FORREST
“Hey, Forrest. Don’t… I wanted to
tell you I love you.”

FORREST JR.
“I love you too, Daddy.”

FORREST
“I’ll be right here when you get back.”

You will notice that that comment was written at 3:45 a.m., I meant country, but I had forgotten to add one very important thing….Yes, it was hard to watch you all go,. but you know the truth is I could not be more proud of who you are. Could not be more grateful for all the Lord has done in you and Kristin to make you the parents that will raise 3 great boys who will be strong and follow what the Lord has for them.

All that to say, each season of letting go is hard, but oh, the rewards from the Lord for raising kids for Him are greater.
Very proud of you , son….Mom
