Congratulations Kevin and Judith! As a widow with two adult children, I’ve learned to give them the right to make their own mistakes and not to try to control and/or fix everything for them. If I intervene to protect them from painful experiences, I also do them a great disservice. As Mark Twain said, “A man who carries a cat by the tail learns something he can learn in no other way.” When I took over their responsibilities, I was also robbing them of the chance to accomplish something and to feel good about what they’d done. I learned that although I was trying to help, by interfering I was communicating a lack of respect for their abilities. I Love their best and never fear their worst. I allow them the privilege and opportunity to be themselves. I Love them unconditionally / no matter what. Most importantly, I pray for them. As a Mother, my job is to take care of the possible and trust God with the impossible. Rousing Faith! Diana
