Single Mom Slice Of Life:
Dear God.. Are They Ready For The Real World?
In a shocking turn of events, despite the fact that I cannot keep a plastic plant alive, I have somehow managed to get a kid to 17-years-old. In eight months he will be (heaven help us all) a legal adult. Is he ready to go out into the world? Would the world survive any better than his poor bedroom has? More importantly, will he understand that things do not magically happen? Do he and his brother know the basic difference between a want and a need?
I can say, with only slightly shaky confidence, yes… yes they do. Maybe. I hope. Granted, as boys, they are a constant work in progress, however, looking back over the last (gulp) 17 years, I have done what I can to make sure they understand, appreciate, and practice accountability –for themselves, and their belongings.
