Confessions of teens mom #8

Weird crazy emotions! Blessed that my
Kid is alive and well! Just finished one of the toughest assignment a parent has to do for the Every 15 Minute Program. Glen and I were asked to write an obituary for Brent. Without knowing how to write one, we looked up a few examples but Glen took over and wrote a beautiful obituary. I just cried! The fear of losing one of my kids is just unbearable. It is my hope that Brent and Victoria, and all the other teenagers, will take the hard lessons  being taught to heart and think twice before doing something stupid.
Please help me to continue to have strength and patience to raise smart young man and woman so they can make good decisions as they grow and become more independent. 

(Lots of love!)

Confessions of teens mom #7


June 10, 1997 my little boy came to this world after being late and with extra help from doctors (once labor started, he came in an hour!) the first months were terrifying... You know... Being new parent! But thank God, he was perfect, my life was perfect! A wrestler from birth and after many years of practicing, participating in different tournaments, a break in here and there, Brent wrestled hard during his 4 years at Ripon High School. I am a proud mama of this young man for all the time he dedicated to the program. Also thankful for the wonderful coaches that guided him through all four years. 
To new adventures!
L.O.L (Lots of Love!)
