Day 60: Loving My Teenagers

So today's post will be brief, but I just have to share a special moment of the day. While most parents dread being in the company of their teenagers, I have to tell you I LOVE being around my boys and listening to them talk! Now don't think I'm crazy, I'm not sayin' every second of every day, but when you can grab moments of being in their company while they are communicative and sharing, it is golden!

Brian and I picked up Harrison & Spencer (our 14 year old twin teenagers) tonight from a friends house and a bunch of boys piled in the car. Listening to their conversations about their finals next week, other players on their baseball team, kids at schools, food, restaurants, it all warmed my heart so much!

I thought how empty my life would be if I didn't have youth in it to keep me young! Being around hopeful children who have nothing but their dreams to aspire to is so touching. It makes you believe that there are good things left in our world when most of the news you hear as an adult is so horrifying. When you sit and just listen to them talk about growing up and a bunch of teenage nonsense it allows you to remember a slice of your youth and all the dreams you too had.

If you have children in your world, hug them tight today, listen to them talk and know that you are blessed to have youth in your company -- no matter how annoying a teenager can be!
