Some challenging moments for my two tweens tonight, as they have been spending a lot more time together. They are usually fine when it’s just the two of them, but when there are other people around (especially another friend), they can easily get bothered by one another. They have two polar personalities, and they have always balanced each other out well for most of their lives. Lately, as they have entered the tween stage, their opposite personalities are what seems to be driving them apart. By end of the day though, they were able to have honest communication and apologize to each other. I believe with all my heart that their friendship will continue to grow and strengthen through various life stages.
Abba Father, help all of us (parents included) to have increased grace on one another, through the upcoming weeks and beyond.
