I was walking out of the house tonight to go to another meeting when Jackson calls to me. "Dad...you are my best friend! I love you!"
Wow. Right now I have a ton of things happening, (I'm also watching Duke play and I'm totally pulling for VT) as I'm getting ready for ordination interviews. I have a final (I pray) interview for my full ordination as an Elder in the United Methodist Church. My mind is running all over the place and with the pressure I feel preparing for this interview, I was almost brought to tears when my four year old son gave me a little perspective.
Don't get me wrong, I think the time is at hand for ordination, but I'm my son's best friend and right now that's enough to speak on it!
