Families Have Fun Quotes and Thoughts
Some Pertinent Family Quotes:
What is family to you?
My family is everything to me. I have loved being a mother and now a grandmother. The joy of raising children is unsurpassed. It has to be the greatest of privileges we ever receive in life. With privilege comes responsibility and the responsibility of raising a family is huge and not without challenges. Try to make the road less rough with more fun.
We have had plenty of challenges, it has not all been smoothe sailing. Sometimes I see families that seem so altogether perfect that I feel inadequate in my role. But folks it is our responsibility to raise our family the best way we can and when they become adults its up to them to make the best of their lives.
You continue to love them and support them wherever and whenever you can but you cannot control them or have any power over them as adults. You have to let them go. So don’t feel bad if things go a little haywire for your kids as they become adults, they have to deal with life in their own way . They will probably implement many of the things you modeled for them and they may invent new ways of doing things. Thats OK.
It hurts like hell when your kids choose to disconnect from family. Your heart will ache for them and you will cry many nights for them. But you can no longer be held responsible for the decisions they make as adults. You have to let them go, no matter how hard it is. One day they will come back as a prodigal and then you can throw a big party to celebrate.
