So like teen-agers, life can be destroyed in twenty-four hours and restored in the next twenty-four. Good advice given by the mom. Nice job. Thanks for sharing.
Oh how painful it is to watch your child go through that horrible feeling of rejection. Your first paragraphs really grabbed my attention. How nice that Jesus is always there loving us.
Oh the pain of our first love as a teenager. I loved how the mother handled the situation. Truly beautiful and so tender.

good writing.as mother of a teenage girl i can relate to this "end of the world" feeling in the emotional ups and downs of friendships.
you have captured the moment well and used a religious parallel. I am glad the teenager in the story was so receptive to that, i think mine might just respond differently in the intensity of the moment.would make a great story for a youth group :-)
