THANKS, I've been really aggravated with my teenager (he's 15) and his moodiness...I've found myself speaking back to him in the same manner he talks to me. I try to be cheerful but the second he starts being his gloomy, short self, I start back with the same language. Thanks for this reminder! I need to be the ADULT and know that eventually he will "outgrow" this stage. (BTW: he's not rude or disrespectful, just woe is me, moody....).
Sarah....thank you for posting this reminder. It struck my heart. And my heart needed it.
