And I wanted to give him something special. Something he can look at when he's 80 and say:
'This is what my parents gave me when I turned eighteen. Isn't it lovely?'
But what do you give to an 18 year old boy who's main interest is computer games?!
A St. Christopher keychain
After lots of pondering, and tearing my hair out I found it! I decided on a St. Christopher coin on a keychain.
St.Christopher is the patron saint of travellers. And I would love for him to keep an eye on my son as he travels through his life.
St.Chrisopher coins also come in medaillons. But I know my son. He doesn't 'do' jewelry. So that's why I decided on a keychain. That way he'll always have it with him.
On the front there's a picture of St.Christopher. And on the back it says: 'Get home safely'.
I love my gift.
And hopefully in the future my son will appreciate it too.
