Thank you everyone for your inspirations about parenting adult children.  Some of the best things about your posts summarize...

1.  Hope you have taught them what they need to know but allow them to be       independent.

2.  Don't interfere.

3. Give advice only when it is asked for then don't expect them to follow it. ;)

4.  Thrust in God to help them through their trials.

5.  Pray...A L O T .

Excellent advice from all you moms out there.  By the way, I have 5 children ages 20, 21, 28, 30, 31.  They are all grown up and giving me the best grand kids ever.

As far as following your wonderful advice lets see how I'm doing.

1. I know they have been taught right from wrong, good from evil, respect, problem solving skills.  How to boil water and do emergency first aide.  I could go on and on.  PASS

2.  I really really really want to interfere.  I know I can't.  I need to go find something to sew...  PASS  (so far)

3.  My tongue is sore from biting it.  PASS sort of

4.  I have faith that God has a plan for us, all of us even those who forget their faith sometimes.  I dragged each of them to church when they were young maybe it's the ear twisting I did that sent them on the wrong path...No -  PASS

5.  I am praying all the time.  PASS

I guess I'm getting an A well maybe a B+

I really wanted to respond to each of you but some of you are no reply bloggers.  What that means is that you don't have your email address in your profile.   I have no way to contact you  unless you leave your email on your post.  So instead of choosing my favorite post I narrowed it down to the few I could respond to and let the random generator pick for me.   Here is what I came up with for a prize.

I have chosen for you a Simplicity Snap Sack Quilt kit.  Everything you need except the batting is in the kit.  A jar of Lavender Bath Salts so that you can relax and let your cares evaporate and a great quilting magazine to inspire you for the next season.  Enjoy!

Oops!  You're gonna have to trust me on this one.  I messed up the random generator but the winner is........Josie McGrazie.  I've emailed you Josie. 
Thanks for stopping in your comments mean so much to me.


  1. Congratulations to the winner and thank you for hosting. Gentle Hugs!!
