My 10 year old came in covered in mud. Typical for him…Galahad wears his love for the outdoors as a badge of honor, right down to the last grass stain.

A quick shower, and my young man enters my room a few moments later, attired in khakis, a long-sleeved dress shirt and a tie.

It’s 2:30 p.m. Mom’s sick and we have no pressing engagements, that I’m aware of…

I look at him…quizzically…

“What? Can’t a guy put on a tie without getting a funny look? I like wearing ties…”

This is the young fellow who is quite sure he has a vocation. (May God will it!)

That priestly collar ought to suit him just fine…

Blessings,

btw…did I mention he looks very dashing?  Well, he does!
