It's so hard being Mom. Sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes your children have to shed some tears and so do you in order for them to grow and be better. My daughter is going through some SERIOUS growing pains. She has been struggling ever since she stopped going to college. She decided to stop going to school to WORK! Well we all know that was not the right move. However, I did not kill her. I took a step back, prayed about it and gave her the time and space to learn these life lessons for herself. I have had to realize that I am hurting my child by holding her hand and catching her EVERY time she falls. God has let me know that I need to stay out of the way so that He can break her down and build her back up. It is only then that she will be refined and made into the woman she should be. Love is pure, tender and tough all at once. Being a parent is the hardest but the most rewarding opportunity on Earth. Lord give me the strength to be obedient and to always do what YOU would have me to do concerning my children.
