After almost 24 years of being a mother to three kids and a grandmother to one, AND being a Christian, AND living in a small town, I have learned one thing…stop beating yourself up over the decisions/mistakes/what you think are mistakes your child is making. I know it’s hard, I’m not telling you what to do, and trust me I AM GUILTY. Nobody is perfect and you can make all the right decisions, but children are going to go against us sometimes or choose not to take our advice, but you know what…that’s how they grow and really most of the time they will be okay in the end. Sometimes they will make small mistakes and sometimes they are whoppers, sometimes it makes life interesting and sometimes we are standing in the mirror asking “WHY??” My son is 23 and I still want to shelter him from the bad things in this world…haha…We are mothers and we only want the best for our kids, but they have to live and learn…didn’t we?? Aren’t we okay most of the time?? Anyway, just something I have been learning along the way…and I’m sure we all are, but just felt like it needed to be said.
