Last Saturday was Samuel’s 17th birthday. We had plans to spend the day in Little Rock eating where he wanted, going where he wanted to go. Just celebrating Samuel.
We had a large storm Friday night during the football game. Lightning caused the game to be postponed at halftime. While we were glad to get to go home instead of sitting out in the rain, we weren’t excited about the make-up time for the game.
Samuel had to be at the field house for pre-game Saturday at 1:00, and the game was at 6:00. So, we didn’t get to celebrate him like we had planned. We did make a quick trip to Little Rock to get his birthday presents and eat his 2nd choice for lunch, and then rushed back for him to get to practice.
Whew it was quite a morning, but I spent the afternoon in my bed naping. I think that was the best way to celebrate giving birth. I could have really used an epidural!
We’re proud of the person Samuel is. He isn’t afraid of a challenge, loves life and people. He makes good decisions, chooses good friends and desires to be who God wants to be. I know that he’s a 17 year old boy and believe me, he acts like one. But, we’re proud of him!
