I have posted same thing many times but time of year for a repeat.
Mine walked through the door last night and I was in awe. Reflecting back on the skinny kid who left for school two years ago, I thought he looked good first Thanksgiving home.
But a boy didn't come through the door last ngiht, it was a 21 year old man who was now filled out in all the right places and definetly taller. Hair a bit longer to my liking but definetly much different than even 3 months ago.
Later, I thought about all that has transpired over the past 6 years since freshman in HS. And I felt a little sad.
Sad because I think I wished away too many things to come and go, HS seasons, recruiting, draft, NLI, first fall practice, first college start, first win, 2 college seasons come and gone.
For the first time I am not so eager for season to begin. Not so eager because I have been so eager for things to come and now they are gone. There will be new things to look forward to, but never those HS and early college years.
Enjoy the holidays, enjoy the moment, enjoy all because what happens today is done forever. One day you will wake up and realize you were too eager for everything to happen.
