You know those moments that you don't expect...that catch you off guard and really touch your heart.
God must love orchestrating those moments.
Scenario - We were in the car driving up to help my sister - in - law move. We're chatting away and my eldest says -

"man I wish I could remember the conversations we have about God and stuff in our class room because I want to remember them and tell you because I want to hear your opinion on the discussions we're having but I can't remember exactly what we were talking about or how it went"

He wants to hear my opinion....man nothing greater than that...I could have cried! Caleb has always been a bit like that - I have a Father's day poster in my work trailer that says some reasons why Caleb loves me, my favourite is "I love my Dad because he helps me make decisions on things I am not sure of."

I hope he always wants me to help him make decisions he isn't sure of, but there's the rub, these days as He gets older, I cant keep up the charade....I don't know all the answers! So now the transition will be, can we both come to God together and listen for answers, not that easy...but I'm up for the challenge.

It's amazing the preconceived ideas we have of people when it comes to parenting, and other areas of life for that matter. I have a guy on my site right now - he is all tatooed and huge...we got to talking about kids and he says, "yah I have a 17 year old son, to tell you the truth, I don't know what I'd do without him, he's my best friend." I got all teary - I'm not even sure why really....I guess all you Dad's out there know what I felt!
