The most important lesson I have learned from this practice is that when we pray for others to change, sometimes, God changes them. Other times, he changes our ability to notice or bear it.
Then there are times heaven is more interested in something else.
The fact that you are old enough to be married, or have your own children is by the way. All a mother wants to do is keep you safe.
And if that requires taking a firm hold of your hand as you cross the street, road, or expressway, then so be it.
I’d be cussing and swearing if I were that kind of man, but that isn’t a vocabulary I use.
Seriously. Stop leaving your children with idiots.
That might be the key to your peace of mind in the future.
