As a mother of grown children, I know what your mean. Mine can certainly make or break my world. It is hard to not be able to fix everything for them like we could when they were small.
"This too shall pass" is my mantra. It calms me down and exercise helps too.

The choice is mine. I am in charge of me. Live healthy.

Yeah, NANA, and the Serenity Prayer, too. Definitely.

I hope you feel better... emoticon emoticon


Take time to THINK...It is the source of power.Take Time to READ..It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to PRAY..It is the greatest power on earth. Take Time to LOVE and BE LOVED..It is a God-given privilege.
Be friendly, laugh,give and do charity.....IT is the key to heaven.

I hope things have... "calmed" since this post & I agree with NANA, the serenity prayer often gets me through.

...walking is always a mind clearing time for me too...and the Serenity prayer is a good thing to remember as well...God grant me the serenity to accept the the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know to know the difference.
