Word of the Day

Wrench

/’rench/ verb 1: to move with a violent twist 2: to pull, strain or tighten with violent twisting or force 3: to injure or disable by a violent twisting or straining 4: to snatch forcibly

Example: The feeling in my heart as Teen Angel recently left for her first official date with a real live boy in a moving vehicle. Wasn’t it just yesterday I had to restrain myself from running after her as she crossed the street by herself for the first time? Tomorrow’s word of the day? Prayer.

Harder than being without power, I'll bet. I've been there so I can relate. Thinking positive on your behalf . . . .

OMG, sit tight. All you can do now is hope and pray that all the morals and values you taught her as a child will still be ever present in her mind. Been there done that with two daughters. I survived and so did they.
