Today is the day!
For twenty one years we have been parents to one or more teenagers. Luke turned thirteen in 1992, and today Daniel turns twenty.
Goodbye teen-age years.
Being a mother to teen-agers has been challenging, interesting, humbling, fun and intense. It kept my calendar full and me wide awake in the middle of the night for a dozen different reasons.
Our children, along with being fun, energetic, imaginative and intelligent, could be lazy, irritable, or smart-mouthed. Their mother could also be lazy, irritable and smart-mouthed. I think we all learned a lot and I did some growing up, too.
Today I celebrate those twenty one years. Thank you, Jesus! It was a gift.
