Being the mom of a teenager has become probably the most trying time in my entire life. Every day is a new challenge and I never know what each new day will bring.
The thing I find the absolute most challenging? The mood swings. For example, when my daughter & I said good night to each other last night, all was right with the world. We had survived all the tornadoes coming through the DFW area, we’d eaten a lovely dinner that we had cooked together, we’d watched a little t.v. together as a family, and she’d even gotten her homework done. Lights out with a smile.
This morning? All I can say is, WTH happened between the last time I saw her last night and this morning? She’s not talking to me, I got glared at several times, and I received the silent treatment all the way to school.
The only thing I can say is, “Dear Lord, please give me the strength I need to get through it!”
