There are always time during the calendar year when you have moments to reflect. The most obvious time is right at the end of the year. It is during that time when many are gearing up for the new year and making their resolutions. Those resolutions are based off of evaluation and reflection. The other time is during the month of May. That is because May is the month of graduations. Graduation from college, high school, middle school, and elementary school. Today, our son Gage, officially became a CHHS frehsman. Anne Marie and I, like so many parents have done and will do, remember the day Gage first came to live with us. That day was the most eye opening, hit-you-like-a-ton-of-bricks reality day in our lives. It was the day we became parents to a 10 yr old. A 10 yr old who had seen more in his 10 years than others see their entire lives. Yet, this 10 yr old chose us. How many parents can say that? Here we are, 4 years later, and Gage has accomplished so much. He has become a Christian, he is maturing into a godly and respectable young man. We are so very proud of Gage and the hard work he has put in to getting to this point in his life. He, without even knowing it, has touched so many lives by becoming a person who has refused to be defined by his past and is working on making his future bright and full of possibilities. Today was a day of reflection for me. Gage, thank you choosing your mother and I to be your parents. We love you, are always here for you, and are praying for you every day!
