Spend the Day With Your Kid

1018He’s going to college in a few short months.

I always knew this day was coming.  And it hasn’t taken me by surprise – although I’m sure my checkbook will be hemorrhaging money and consternation in the not-to-distant future.

Today was a normal day….pick up some junk food for a movie party he’s having, order his glasses, grab a quick bite of lunch, head home so he can  finish last-minute homework.

And just like that, the mundane has become precious…and I wonder why these moments were ever ‘average’ in the first place.

The days are fleeting.  That makes them more than mediocre….everyday….all the years….every moment.

I've been in student ministry nearly 30 years…which generally just confirms how much I still don't know. Some days I'm the pizza-eating, over-responding, teaching-on-the-fly, desperate-for-volunteers, frustrated-with-co-workers youth leader that we all are. And sometimes…I knock it out of the park. I'm everywhere on social media that you are!
