Wrote a super long post yesterday about writing missionaries and waiting for missionaries. Something I have experienced! Hope you get a chance to read it. Sorry it is so long, but I didn't know how to condense it or leave something out. I love how the subject of missionaries has completely transformed my world lately!
My family is growing up and changing! Today two of my daughters headed to girls camp! I remember the days when we had 4 and even 5 daughters there at one time! With our four oldest graduated, our family is shrinking rapidly!!
Planning to get some weeding done outside and the storage room cleaned out. Ugh! But I will be a happy woman to have it done! With my kids help of coarse!
I am kind of struggling with something fairly new to me. Maybe some of you more experienced mothers could help me out. This is kind of crazy. I am having a hard time with my daughters who are of single-dating age (graduated) with their romances. We have a super close relationship and they want to tell me and share everything with me. I am grateful for that, but I find myself naturally wanting certain results and caring about their guy friends a lot. When break-ups or slight adjustments in their relationships happen...it also breaks my heart a little. How do we as the moms be there for our daughters as they need us and come to us for advice...but not get our hearts wrapped up in it as well. This is really hard for me, and I know I have to take more of a back-seat to this...offering advice when asked, and being their friends, but not getting so attached. Really hard, because I love their friends so much. They are such good people.
Have a good day!
