(Inside: Big mom emotions are hard. They say being a teen is emotional, but I say being a parent of teens is – whew – incredibly emotional. Read on…)
They say being a teen is emotional, but I say being a parent of teens is – whew – incredibly emotional.
Look. We know raising big kids is a sacred place. A beautiful spot full of sunrises stretching its rays across watching our kids grow up and seeing who they are becoming. Gratitude and joy sparkle everywhere, and we do see it.
But mom life is complicated. You can love your life and acknowledge that raising big kids is also a stressful place.
Or that it’s hard to relax in your own home because your teen pushes all your buttons.
Or you just didn’t really realize the weight of loving another human so much that they literally are your heart walking around in the outside unsafe world.
So, Jesus be near. Help us breathe in your promises.
Breathe in deep again and imagine God’s calm trickling from your head down to your toes.
Let the stormy waters recede. The tide inch its way back out. The waves relent.
