On Sunday afternoon my wife and I took our son to his first overnight camp. Three days away in the Carolina mountains at Camp Grier, a Presbyterian church camp. As we were about to leave the camp after dropping him off I called my son over and said "I have 3 things that I want you to remember while you're here.
Number 1 is to be respectful of your fellow campers and the camp counselors that are here.
Number 2 is to remember that if you get tired, or scared, or frustrated to say a prayer and God will be with you.
Number 3 is,"
I took his little hand in mine, kissed his palm, and closed his fingers over it,
"Whenever you feel like you're missing your mom, or your dad, or home. Hold this up to your cheek and remember that we love you and we'll be with you again soon."
We then sent him off to his cabin and his camp mates and he skipped joyfully away. We headed back to the car to leave and found that he had forgotten something. I quickly carried it to his cabin and found him talking with one of his counselors. As I handed him the item I asked him what he was going to do if he missed his mom and dad. He smiled a sheepish grin and held his fist up to his cheek.
I walked away knowing that for the next three days he was going to be fine.
I highly recommend "The Kissing Hand" by Audrey Penn for you and a child that you love.
