sometimes parenting feels like swinging in the dark

yeah; the teen years are not so easy. Keep your candles lit RW, you are not alone in the dark; we can light candles together... seeking to pray daily for you and family.

Hang in there. We had a rough weekend with our 14 yr old. This is by far the hardest part of parenting.

What a beautiful photograph. It makes me think of the two of you who hang in between these two - suspended from the two posts, at either end of the life span.

oh man. I just said that yesterday. I feel like I'm flailing helplessly in the dark.

Mom hugs to you, and prayers.

Lovely. Re: swinging in the dark...we walk by faith, not by sight. Easy for someone else to say, I know....

From an outsider looking in, for all of you who have written on this post whom I know, and your children, let me please tell you how beautiful you all are. I can barely imagine the heartache that each of you have experienced raising children, or the joy, but I see the beautiful results all around me. They and you are indeed beautiful. Thank you for struggling in this the greatest work given - you and your children are heroic. Some perhaps with a few more battle scars than wanted or needed but you are family and you are beautiful. Like Elizabeth, I too hold you in my prayers daily.
