I’ve had one of those roller-coaster weeks, that have left me dreaming about stress relief techniques. I mean literally as I sleep, my brain is mapping out a plan for me to feel less stressed 

Which is weird, because I wasn’t conscious I was so stressed. 

The unconscious mind never ceases to astound me. 

Last night we hosted a small gathering of teens to celebrate the 17th birthday of a friend of our son.  

Teens often get a bad rap, but these were all wonderfully respectful and lovely to have in our home. 

Which is encouraging to think they are the friends of  our child. 

That means that is the type of friend he attracts.  Even though sometimes  it’s like we are in the dark tunnel of teenagedom, which feels scary and unknown, that these little glimmers of light bring hope, that when we emerge out of the tunnel, that all will be well with his world. 

I remember this stage with our other kids, but they all came through, stronger and more alive and confident for having undergone the process. 

And me? Fatter and greyer πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Must work on that.
