Changing Times

My sons have been buddies with Josh since they all were little. Really little even. Daniel and Josh were in Sunday School together since…forever. Josh’s mom taught them both California History (including a dozen or so field-trips). The boys played basketball, and roller hockey, and video games. They worked together, both as young paper boys and as pages in the local library. They promoted from eigth grade and graduated from high school together.

Now, their paths have diverged. Joshua is about to march across the parade deck and graduate from ‘boot camp’ as a United States Marine. Daniel has flown down to San Diego to cheer for his friend. From now on, things are gonna be quite different!

We’re all very proud of Josh and wish him God Speed on the rest of his journey.
