Feeling annoyed?

“She’s annoying me right now,” my friend said, making a face at her phone as she hung up. The name that flashed briefly on the screen before the call ended said “Mom.”

Moms, dads, siblings, even friends—they can all get to us sometimes. One moment, everything’s going along fine, and the next, we feel that familiar wave of annoyance washing over us. Sometimes, it even becomes a constant, like for Courtlyn, who writes about how she prayed about a fraught relationship with her mom and a physical healing that followed (see Courtlyn Reekstin, “From anger and annoyance, to love,” August 20, 2014, Sentinel).
