I love my kids. I have loved every stage and age they have been. Different ages have different pluses and minuses. Being a parent of young adult kids is a very tricky/challenging/amazing time. You give advice when asked, but bite your tongue when not asked (okay, or at least try). You are a BIG cheerleader! It is so hard sometimes because I am an adult and they are adults. Sometimes things are said that should not have been said. Sometimes feelings are hurt. When everyone is an adult, it is not always clear who is right and who is wrong. When your children are young, it is so different.
Wading our way through these years is such a blessing as we watch our kids strive to walk with their Savior. It is also a hard, hard time trying to figure out our new, or not-so-new roles.
