Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Sandy at 4Reluctant Entertainers asked what recent savored memory we might be willing to share. One that we have made with our children. She shared about making pancakes with her daughter, and what fun they shared with just the two of them while everyone was away. If you have not read her blog, go here to see what one fantastic lady she is.

Friday evening my son and I went to see my nephew's college baseball game. He is a pitcher, so I never really know whether or not he will be playing, but I have recently felt the desire to show my support whether he plays or not. My son and I really enjoy these times together, and even though he is now 21, he doesn't mind a night out with his mom, and I am so glad!
It had been raining but we took a chance and went anyway. It is about an hour drive, but the closer we got the rain had passed earlier and we got to enjoy the game. After the game was over around 10:00 it was on to IHOP for a late night dinner/breakfast. I enjoy great conversation with him, and he is constantly encouraging me in my walk with the Lord. What more could a mom ask for?

Life gets busy, and we can let the busyness steal the opportunities for time spent together, time that can never be replaced. I encourage you to take the time. It won't be something you will ever regret. Have a blessed week! Jackie

What a great post...I agree with you so much! My two are 21 and 23 and I love spending time with both of them.

It's funny that you should write this because I also posted today about spending time with my two this weekend, something that I don't get to do often now that they've both left the nest. Needless to say, it was a tearful weekend when it came time for good-byes.

That is a great memory! So glad you had it! When we were at our son's USAF graduation, they let all the airmen have extended curfew to attend a minor league game...it was a perfect night for a ballgame and what a great time we had!! Evenings with our boys...now, that is a good time!
