"The things you say, the tone of your voice, the anger or calm of your words—these things are noticed by your children and by others. They see and learn both the kind and the unkind things we say or do. Nothing exposes our true selves more than how we treat one another in the home." Truth is truth no matter who says it, and while I no longer belong to this church, these words are solid truth.
So true....I couldn't have said this any better. It's also about letting go as your children grow and letting them make there own lives and choices even though you may not agree. You have to stand back and be supportive despite how you feel. Being a mother is one of the greatest joys in life but at the same time one of the most difficult. I wouldn't want it any other way!! ♥
