It is hard for me to believe that this senior will be graduating soon. I remember the day his mom and dad found out they were expecting him. I remember going to the hospital to await his arrival. I remember when he couldn’t pronounce my name so he started calling me Aunt Meme-the name stuck and the whole family started calling me that. 😉 I remember having him and his older sister ride in my car (without carseats 😉 time and time again. I remember when he asked me what it meant for Jesus to live in his heart and that he wanted that. I remember baby-sitting him and his sister every summer for several years. I remember when he was the ring bearer for our wedding. As you can see, I could go on and on. I am a proud aunt to all of our nieces and nephews…in case you couldn’t tell. 🙂
Well, here we are to the present day and I am honored to see the man this little boy has become. He is God-fearing and has been a true role model among his peers. He is also quite the athlete and musician. Curtis will be going to Kentucky Christian University in the fall to play football. I look forward to seeing where God takes him in this journey of life. Keep dreaming and believing, Curtis…proud of you.
