The Times They are a Changin' - Momentous Monday

Tiffany over at A Moment Cherished is now hosting
Momentous Monday, a chance for all of us to cherish everyday moments. Please check out her beautiful blog for more precious moments.

On Thursday the Teen officially left his middle school years behind and became a high-schooler.
On Friday Mr K met the Teen's father at the high school in his new town to get him enrolled for next year.

On Saturday My K borrowed a truck and in one afternoon the Teen was packed up and moved out- sniff.

This was the Teen's room Friday night:

And these were taken Saturday night:

Gone are the piles of dirty laundry, food wrappers strewn about everywhere, and half-drank bottles of water.
The scent of Axe has almost faded.

But I will always have the memory of the quiet moment when the Teen first woke up Saturday morning. He came upstairs and sat quietly in a chair in the office. I walked in and he simply stood up and gave me a long hug. No words were needed. After fifteen years our time was over changing. He was off to load up his stuff and set off on a new adventure in his life.

I am so proud of him.


  1. I'm proud of him too. What a special moment.



  2. Oh, wow. What a bittersweet post. Thank you for sharing and for linking up!

  3. I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I've told you before, I'm not sure if you remember, but this is one of my biggest fears, that my oldest, who is from my first marriage, will one day want to go live with his father, who lives 10 hours away. I'm trying to trust God that this won't happen. They are not a Christian family and that worries me more than anything. Hugs...


Your comments are such a blessing to me.

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
