I awoke this morning on a college campus. The night before was not pleasant. I remember thinking, “How did I ever think this little bed was comfortable? ” Then I remembered the last time I was in a bed this small I was 20 years younger and WAY smaller. Then as I was getting ready in the bathroom (which is way fancier than I remember a dorm… bathroom being lol), I looked in the mirror and I laughed to and at myself. Again my mind went back to yesteryear…. a far away time and place, where I had a head full of hair and anything was possible. So now I sit, watching Aaron walk towards me along with other incoming freshman and I am overwhelmed…with memories, gratitude, and everything else. Even though he has encountered numerous challenges in his life, with God, angels and hard work, he has made it to college.
