A Lesson in Mommy-Wisdom That Broke Through My Insecurities

September 18, 2018

  1. This is so good! How fortunate you were to have a friend who loved you enough to speak truth. How brave to ask the question and how wise you were to heed her words. Even if not all the time! You are right parenting never ends. I need to let this influence my own interactions with grown children!

  2. Thank you so much for your comment Denise. I too am reminded of the need with grown children to measure my words carefully and listen well. In fact, the post may have come from a bit of conviction about that…Friendships that stick with you through the process of it all are gold.

  3. This post has great advice, Sylvia. I’m not parent yet, but I will tuck your points in my heart for later!

  4. Such a good word for parents, Sylvia. You were blessed to have a brave, honest friend. We could all use more of that.

  5. Thank you. It’s true. It is not often to find a friend who is loving, honest and brave!
