My Little Boy Growing Up To Fast

Seems like just yesterday I took John by the hand and walked into the elementary school down the long hallway to his first classroom.  Like many first time moms I cried on my drive back home.  It was not until fourth grade when John was diagnosed with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder).  Back then I was in denial of him having this disorder, thinking once he learns to read better,  he would outgrow it.   After much deliberation I went ahead and put him on medication.  My decision did not come easy.  It was a close family friend who convinced me on the meds.  Her teenage son who was also diagnosed with ADD had taken his life and she like myself did not want to put her son on the meds.  To this day she wonders, if he had taken the meds would he still be alive today?  Now that John is a teenager, he refuses to take the meds and continues to struggle through high school. So here we are, a month from John graduating from high school.  Where did the years go?  My son has grown up to fast.  I continue to pray every day that God help John throughout his life as he continues his education.  His plans are to attend Houston Community College then to graduation from Sam Houston State.  Whatever life brings,  Juan and I will always love, support and hold his hand if need be.  No matter how grown up he becomes he will always be my little boy.
