Well, they don’t call me QC Supermom for nothing! I’ve earned this name time and time again. As of Sunday July 31 2016, I am the teen mom of a professional International Basketball player. Without doubt, I know it has been for grace and mercy!
For that last 3 weeks I have been crunched up on the 2nd floor of the hospital visitors lounge. Just keeping hopeful and eager for some good news. All of a sudden my phone rings, it’a my son. He tells me his departure date has been moved up and he’s leaving for Dresden Germany two weeks early.
At first I was sad because I want all of my son out of the U.S. But then extremely happy because he will be doing what he loves and in spite of the fact that we will miss him, I know this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
What was I to say other than, “I’ll wash your laundry tonight.”? After all, I gave him the wings. Now was not the time to lock him in a cage from flying. With that, I escorted him to the Charlotte Douglas airport.
Whew! I was so happy when he face called me after the 15 hr flight safely. I remember going almost 2 decades ago and recalled the huge planes, how good the food was and small the toilets were. With a time difference of 6 hours behind us, I asked him what differences have he noticed between the USA and Berlin. He replied,”Everything over here is small mom.”
—-well yeah, to him, I bet so.He’s 6’8 after all.
These guys must stick out like orange mailboxes.
Because I didn’t want him to forget any of the lessons he has ever learned so , I called in back up. My friends sent him away with tons of advice. See below….
My folks added ;
Valarie -No “Anchor Babies”? Love it! Amen….. that’s a legacy statement right there.
JabeLa – I have never sugar coated a thing to them. Now is not the time to do so. YES…”..
TC Cooper LOL Love it!
.Cooper- Thanks for the invite to share. I’m just so very proud of your guy!!
Cooper -Be curious enough to ask lots of questions and especially listen to answers. Be wise enough to run everything you hear and see through the filter of your faith in God and the values by which you’ve been raised.
Cooper- Finally … Always remember that God has not given you a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. God is for you; therefore, NOTHING and NO ONE can prevail against you. Work hard and live out the experience to its fullest.
Robert -Girl you know I’m proud as hell for you son. I’m happy he’s taking his skills to another level. I have confidence in him and know that he’ll do a great job. Congratulations!
