Delayed Appreciation

As my children get older each year, I must say that I learn to appreciate what I put my mother through while I was growing up.  Currently, I am reminded of my adolescent years as a bit--well, maybe more than a bit--of a know-it-all as I am dealing with my own 12, soon-to-be 13 year-olds.  How frustrating it can be!

This short entry is only to say "thank you" to my mom for persevering in raising me and not giving in to those (mostly) fleeting moments of wanting to strangle me.  And also to voice the hope that I can follow in her example.  God be with me...
