He's different


This past weekend I was at a women's conference at the Rosen Shingle Creek hotel in Orlando and as I was rushing through the lobby to take the elevator to meet friends downstairs for dinner someone stopped me.  They just wanted to take a moment to tell me how amazing our son is.  I already knew it but really never tire of hearing it from anyone else.  (What mother does?  We love hearing great things about our kids!)

It was a pastor's wife who stopped me to talk and she said, "That Dustin...he's one amazing young man.  So many young adults these days are just so self centered...it's all about them...but he's not like that...he's just so..............different."

"I know," I said.  "We're so blessed."  Dustin really does live a consistent Christian life that centers around serving others."

It's Dustin's birthday today.  It's hard to believe 22 years has gone by already.   An amazing 22 years with an amazing boy.  I know, I know, I say amazing a lot.  But it fits.  So I use it.

Congratulations is not exactly the word, because we are blessed when all we pour into our children shines through, given their free will. But God blesses with a wonderful package and it is amazing when they follow that path. So happy for you. And Happy Birthday, Dustin. It's my great niece's 6th birthday and we're praying the same for her!
