I really like Sudoku. It’s rather simple in it’s complexity and I enjoy that challenge. You know there are always going to be nine squares within nine squares and the numbers one through nine will always go somewhere in that square. Each line, each column, and each square contain those numbers, 1 through 9. You may not know how, but you know they always fit…
But life is not like that. And that really is okay.
Today my son’s Rite of Passage begins. Today, he finds himself in a sacred space with men who will help him to discover what it means to be a man. I’m so excited for him to discover who he is becoming and where he will take that. As my first born child when I held him in my arms for the first time, I was so overwhelmed with the task before me.
I look back on his childhood and hope that I gave him enough love, strength and freedom. I hope that my mistakes lead to a greater strength so he can overcome his obstacles.
My son is a good boy and I can see the great man that he will become. If nothing else, I am very proud of him!
I love you Alex
