Have you ever been the recipient of the dreaded teenage eye roll?
It's one of my least favorite reactions, and so common today. Need some ideas on how to counteract it? Click on over to The Moms of Boys Society and check out my post there today.
It's written to moms of boys, but whether yours and boys or girls, you'll be able to commiserate.
After I wrote that post, I began thinking about mental eye rolls...mine, in fact. You know, those times when God gives you something you don't expect -- one more task, another sibling fight to settle, an unexpected burden. There have been those times when I've sighed and thought, "Really? One more thing to deal with today?" And if He'd been in the room, well, I hate to say it but He just might have been the recipient of an eye roll.
Yikes. What am I thinking? Once again, motherhood and writing about it leads me back to my own flaws and foibles -- and my need for Him.
Thanks, Lord, for being there. For enduring my sighs and what must seem to You like an immature attitude. And most of all, for Your grace.
