My friend gave me good parenting advice years ago. She used to say “If it can be fixed with money, it’s not a problem.” Now I’m not trying to be glib about the availability of money. Sometimes we need money and won’t be getting it, or won’t be getting enough of it. But my friend understood what she was saying.
You see she had twin daughters, and one daughter got cancer, and after a brief summer of excellent medical treatment at a world-renowned hospital, her one daughter died. My friend suffered one of the cruelest inequities of nature, losing a child. After that she understood problems could be classified into two distinct categories, the ones you could solve, and the ones you could not.
In your family, are you focused or worried over your “not a problem” that will be solved? Maybe it won’t be solved today… but if you think about the things that are truly important, is this one of them?
Set your priorities straight with your children and your family. Do not keep your mind focused on the “not a problems” that bother you. Many of these will be over and done with soon. You will have real problems, so know the difference.
