The joy of growth and change

Can "joy" be bittersweet?  I just returned home from praying for my 15 year old as he gave a talk on ideals at a Christian youth weekend.  He looked so handsome as he came in the room in a button-up shirt and tie.  It seems like only yesterday that I left for the adult version of the same retreat as he sat in his high chair.  I cried the entire way to church!  Sam, I am so proud of the man you are becoming!  Bear and I will be waiting for you when you get home.  (I guess joy can be sad, too.)
