Parenting is not for the faint at heart with the sleepless nights soothing infants to more sleepless nights waiting for teenagers to come home safely.  There are ups when we are so proud we could burst and we have our down moments when it seems the challenges will never end.

Then one day you wake up and your child is starting senior year of high school.  Where did the time go?

And, if at the end of the day you can still share a laugh or two, consider it a job well done.

As with all things in life, it brings to mind the old adage originated in the writings of the medieval Persian Sufi poets:  This too shall pass.

So, take a deep breath and enjoy the ride…
