“When I Regret Donald Not Buying that Gun”

Last Sunday after church we went to the Orlando Gun Show. If only they had them every weekend, my life would be complete. The awesome Prickett family joined our family as we perused the show for great deals on cool guns.
Before we were getting ready to leave, my good friend Donald Prickett pulled me aside and showed me this amazing deal on an AR-15 that was fully loaded. I’m talking Bi-pod foregrip, shoulder sling, illuminated close range scope, flashlight, laser. It was amazing. And the price was too good to pass up.
Honestly, I was a little jealous because I really wanted that scope, flashlight and laser for my AR-15. So I asked the guy, “How much for just the scope, flashlight and laser?” He said that if Donald bought that gun he would give me the scope, flashlight and laser for $200! WOOOOOHOOOOOO!

The last thing we as parents want is for our kids to grow up to be jerks. The other thing we as parents want is for our kids to one day become adults and leave. That’s right, we want them to leave, start a life of their own. We want them baby birds to soar.
In our current world however, “delayed adulthood” is a thing. Young adults who never leave home or even attempt to start a life of their own. I like to call it the “Peter Pan Syndrome.” Adults who just want to be kids for the rest of their lives. Well I read an article today about tips for young people on how to grow up. Its worth a read.
