He Waited Up

So I ventured back to Bremen earlier this week to attend a meeting at the Bremen plant and also continue research regarding some problems in Lafayette. As an added bonus, I was able to spend time friends and family.

I left for Bremen right after class so I ended up driving up the lane to my parent's house just as the digital display reached midnight. As I walked up to the house, I noticed that the lights in the living room were still glowing bright. Upon opening the front door, I could even hear the TV. This was a bit surprising. The parents usually hit the hay in pretty good time - kind of like me (as Jenn pointed out last night). Anyway, Dad was still sitting in his chair awake. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "Well, I just wanted to make sure you got in okay."

Of course, this shouldn't have been surprising.

But, in a way, it was pretty awesome.

I mean, here I am getting very close to 30 and Dad waited up to make sure that I got in okay.

This meant a lot.

I kind of think this is a lot like God.

He waits up for us, too.

Thanks Dad.
