Adult children are gone to be the death of me

Slipper signs of life

Joshua 24:15
Scriptures clearly states, And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this whom ye will serve; whether the gods, which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. 

I can remember the times when my children would reach out to my hand to my hand many times to grasp on to my hand. As soon as they felt secure and found confidence in themselves they no longer felt the need to reach out for my hand. One of my daughters did not walk until she was fifteen months old, I had confidence that she would learn to walk when she felt comfortable to let go. 
It is like riding an emotional roller coaster raising more than one children because each child has their own personality, own character and their own needs. So as a parent raising three children sometime a parents may feel they wish they can divide themselves in parts to be there for each one. Love your children equally and unconditionally and only want the best for them.

I still remember the time when my one daughter first break up. she was devastated and very hurt.  As parents trying to comfort their children during this time of need parents set their own feelings they may have against the person who broke their daughters heart. Parent feels the pain that was set there from the break up. She came to me and I held her in my arms and I would comfort with words to assure her she was a beautiful girl and if that person could not see that in her than it is his lost. It experience in her life I feel she needed to go through to make her a better person and learn from the break up. Before I came a mother I was human being and I made mistakes. Maybe sometimes it is not what your child wants to hear but I was open and honest with my children. We had a very close relationship. Our children knew they could come to us with any problems they had, sometimes as they tell me that there are some problems they had that their friends could understand. 

It wasn’t until our daughters started dating and they dating men we were oppose too. Never stop being a parent, no matter how old your children are. For I feel they still need their parents. Even with me being Adult I still need my parents and I would go to them for parental advice. My father was a minister and my mother was a minister wife. I was raised in the Mennonite faith so I was not very worldly smart. continue
