Buddy Friend

Owen's prayer two nights ago. Sweet in it's simplicity.

"Dear God,
Thank you for loving me. Thank you for keeping me safe. Thank you for staying with me always so I'm not scared.

Yesterday was the first time I felt my heart drop for my buddy friend. We went and visited Jason while he was building the theatre set at the high school. Owen saw two girls that he was wondering why they were sitting on the ground, so I told him to go ask them what they were doing. He got almost all the way there, then looks back and me and said "What if they don't like me?" Later that night when I talked to him again he said that two of his friends at school were playing and didn't want him playing with them. Reality hit me of all the years ahead, and everything my sweet boy will have to experience on his own. His big tender heart is such a wonderful part of him, but it will be the part that takes the most hits over his life. I didn't know before becoming a mom that it would hurt me just as much as it hurts him.
