Starlet Ware Encouragement and Prayer
I believe God gave me the absolutely best Son ever! He has always been very independent, sensitive, stubborn, flexible, quiet, smart and good humored. There were times when he was younger that I felt like I was getting it all wrong due to words that were spoken to me. I let those words crush me until a school teacher spoke encouraging words to me that canceled out the previous negative words. I thank God I love to learn and apply what I learn. I also tell everyone what I learn. I believe my Brandon listens and applies what he learns as well.
My Brandon isn’t perfect, but he is perfect for our family. I love him so much. Sometimes I don’t believe I was so blessed to be his mom. He is a college student studying Culinary Science. He is such a studious young man. He rooms with 3 other guys and he is the ‘mature’ one. I have to giggle when he tells me about some of the things that bother him because they are the things that drove me up the wall when he was home. I am so proud to say this 21 year old MAN has been doing his own laundry, cooking for himself and cleaning up after himself for many years. Hallelujah!
For a few years, my Brandon didn’t like his mother or at least that is how it felt. I chalk that up to him searching for his way in the world. I kept talking to him and most of the time, he listened respectfully. He was in charge of checking our mail while we were on our cruise. When he came over after we returned, he stayed and chatted with me about school, his graduation date, finances and his current classes. I enjoyed our conversation very much.
My sweet, little boy is now a handsome, grown man!
God gave me his very best! What else would he give since He “gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16.
