My teenage son delights me. I can’t help it. He just does.
Coming out of the dentist’s office today I heard the receptionist say to him, “What, no crying or being scared?” To which all 6 foot 300 pounds of him humorously replied, “Only on the inside!”
When we got in the truck he says to me, “What’s not to like about the dentist? You get to relax back in a recliner, wear sunglasses, and snooze while a pretty blond attends to your every need and even gives you little sips of cool water while sucking the spit out of your mouth.”
I’m telling you… he is a delight!
It makes me wonder what delights my Heavenly parent?
