I finally pulled myself off of the sofa to head for bed.  Before I went upstairs, I looked at my son positioned in front of the mirror. I thanked God for him and his teenage woes.

I turned off all of the lights except the one in the dining room so that he could stand and admire his reflection as long as he liked.
