My Daughter

I am so surprised by my oldest daughter, Amanda. She is 12 years old. She leaves with her youth group tomorrow for a conference called Generation Unleashed. She loves's her favorite time of year. They have lectures, worship and a great time learning about the Lord and each other. Last year she came back changed and amazing. But, what I am surprised about is that she wants me with her. When I was her age, I would not have wanted my mom to come with me to a youth group event. I desperately wanted my space at that age. Amanda still wants to include me in her life and what is going on around her. I am not able to go to GU with her this year, but she wants me to promise to be a counselor next year. I told her I wouldn't promise, but it would be my top priority. Now I have a year to get ready to be a counselor to a bunch of middle school aged girls - YIKES!
