She can be so happy shining that amazing smile she contains. She can be full of the belly laugh that is so contagious the entire room follows suit. She can glow with the light of happiness and cheer that spreads like a wildfire throughout the home. She can be the joy that makes you want to be around her always.
She blows. Her face turns that beautiful smile upside down and causes gloom to pass along to each muscle of her body. Her volcano erupts within minutes. Her screams and tears fill the air around us all. Our joy dissipates and is replaced with concern and patience. Our control is thin but it remains aware. The time it takes to get the control back in order seems long but is such a short time.
Her heart is big and her love is pure. Her passion is overwhelming and spreads just has her pain. She carries her dreams where she travels. All is right in her world, again.
This is a regular occurrence around this house. The house with a nine-year-old daughter has turmoil and love within the same hour. Her mind is going in the direction of her passion and it turns left when a disappointment enters. Why does this happen? Why does she react in this way?
Yes, the hormones in the foods she eats and the drinks that she drinks. So, I have tried to remove such things but because they are everywhere, I have found it difficult and close to impossible to fill in the areas with other foods.
So, we continue to deal with these outbursts and pray with her and teach her to deal with them other ways.
