I started reading a book called "What Your Daughter Isn't Telling You." I've only read the first chapter so far but I teared starting at the introduction. I've always had a great relationship with my daughter but once she hit 14 I was lost. I tried to relate thinking because I had her at such a young age I would understand her better than most mothers would understand their teens in this day in age. I was wrong. I knew for awhile now that she is going through something but last weekend we went to an over night youth conference, she goes every year, this year I for some reason decided I wanted to tag along. During one worship set she came up to me, started crying and said "Mom, I'm so broken." My heart broke into a billion pieces. Its one thing to raise babies, but teens... its scary. I am a single mom too so I feel so lost and alone. This book reminded me that God chose me specifically to do this mothering job for my daughter. I don't know how to do it or maybe I'm scared to do it because of the teenage girl I was. But I know that I'm not doing it alone.
I just needed to share that. Thanks sisters!
