The boys trotted up the stairs with their too long legs in their too short pajama pants. We prayed together. For the first day of school, for kindness and gentleness and to be loving, and to make the right decisions. Father God, help us to sit right like Miss Brenda tells us on the bus. We were thankful for new beginnings. I even put new sheets on the beds.
We all are ready for a new beginning.
I'll surprise them with their favorite breakfast and treats in their lunchboxes. In a week the novelty will wear off and we'll just make do with what we have on hand that morning.
But this day.
This day is a new beginning. This day deserves the fanfare and a photo and a little extra squeeze in my hug, Off you go.
Off you go now.
