I don’t just want to get through the teenage years. I want to cherish these years when my children are still living under my roof and sleeping in their beds and eating my food. I want to store up memories. I want to see stories come full circle. I want to have deep conversations. I want to honor big moments. I want to appreciate ordinary days. I want to celebrate accomplishments no one else sees. I want to look back with gratitude and forward with hope. I want to know I did not take the gift of these years for granted. Because the love I have for my teens is not something I have to get through; it’s something I’m holding onto.
