Yes, it's official. My 19 year old son is engaged. His fiancee is a home school graduate from CO. She is very sweet. They make a good couple. The date is next year (July). By then, he will have graduated from college.
I can't help but think back to that little boy I used to cuddle. He loved to be read to. He loved to play baseball. He loved to just be a kid. As he grew older he became a good cook. He became a good musician. He became a young man that was actually fun to be around. The more he grew into that young man, the less we saw of him. He went to college and worked 2 jobs. After falling in love with Sarah, he moved to be closer to her and her family. It has been sad watching him grow farther from us, but I am proud that he is willing and able to do it.
We work all those years trying to produce a mature, independent, Christian, young man. We should be proud when the end result is a mature, independent, Christian young man that needs us less and less.
I love you Matthew and Sarah.
