Well, here it is, 9:30 a.m. the first day of school 2013, and my 11-year-old daughter is still home and all worked up. It’s difficult for her to foresee a good day when she’s full of fear and anxiety.
At this moment, she has decided to take a shower, as this often helps her decompress.
I have recently decided to go with the flow, as both her sanity and mine is so very crucial. We are blessed with a teacher who, unfortunately has the same experiences at home, yet makes life for us simpler because of it. She is a Godsend!
This life is not a simple one, as many parents will attest, but with the grace of God, who has given me a daughter with lots of spirit, along with a kind and supportive husband and a son who follows in his fathers footsteps, we will prevail!
