We face so many choices as parents. We do not realize this until we have children that we will have to decide things like what they eat, clothes, schools, movies, places they can go, when they can date..and the list goes on and on and on. It starts with breast feed or bottle..that is a decision we ALL have to make! And then can span all the way to..college!
Sometimes we question and question again about which is the best. Well, at least I do..some of the time. So my question is 'How do you know?' How will you know you are making the best choice for their health? How will you know you are making the best choice for their education?
Will they grow up in the ways that you teach them or desire for them?
But I have come to this conclusion. We can do our best or what we think is our best, but it is all still up to them as they get older and begin to make their own decisions in life.
The best that we can do is to do the best we can with what we have at the time. We cannot beat ourselves up or agonize over some things beyond us. With Mothers day past and Fathers day around the bend, we need to just be grateful for the opportunity, the blessing to raise a child to maturity and watch them grow. Let the experience bring joy and when there are tears, let those tears water your soul and strengthen it for the next step up.
