When I was in my twenties,
When I was in my thirties,
When I was in my forties,
By the time I was 50,
My friends said that
My friends said that
Can it be that parents are sentenced
Recently, one of my own children
PASS IT ON TO OTHER WONDERFUL PARENTS

You never stop being a mother no matter how old your kids are.

I think I will need to send this to my mom- she is constantly worried about me and my siblings even though my youngest sister is now in high school!

Believe me it never stops even when we think we're close, something
happens and the mother in us come's out again. My brother's is 54 and my
mom still worries about him. He just says "Yes mother". It's funny to
listen to her talk to him, or any of us.LOL

It doesn't matter how old you are - you will always need your mom & dad. And because that's true, we parents know on a biological level that we will never stop being protective and observant of our kids. Assuming you have good and caring parents, you will need them all your life and when you're 80 years old and they finally pass away, you'll still feel like it was too soon to let go.
You're a parent for LIFE, just like you're someone's kid for life. And while that thought might scare the pants off someone who is not yet a parent, know that your relationship matures and changes over time. You won't be facing the same concerns you did when the kids were 2 months, 2 years, 20 years, or 60 years old.
We are social beings, and most of us define ourselves in social groupings. Dr Oz once mentioned that "loneliness is an epidemic in America" and that it's because of family groups (family defined as biological or a family of close friendships, etc) declining and people feeling increasingly isolated. I think that's very true!

You always worry about your kids, that will never change, then when they get married you now worry about your son-in-law and daughter-in-law , it never stops.
