Just because you get them to 18, or 22, or in the case of the country of Spain 28, doesn’t mean you are finished parenting, it just morphs.  Just because our children are the age of an adult does not mean they can live on their own. Even when our children reach adulthood it is hard to know what to do, and how to do it.  When they are little we never want them to fall or to struggle.  We don’t want them to experience failure resulting in bitterness against us.  What if they look up at us from their failure, eyes full of disappointment and this question, “How could you allow me to feel such pain?”  Blaming the parent for not protecting them from the storm of their own sin or, worse yet, the sin of others or the circumstances of a difficult world…

ABOUT JENNA

Jenna Fergus is an educator, independant artist, wife, and mother.

Hello, friends! The reason for the Mind Over Things That Matter website is to publicly and electronically untangle the thoughts we have while we try to live in a flawed world. Every member of my family struggled with mental and emotional anomalies of one kind or another at one time or another. Thus, my curiosity regarding the power of changing our minds about stuff, so we can surpass survival and live an abundant life. Now, I make art about these kinds of ideas and memories, lifetime ideas.
