The third woman my husband married was the mother of teenagers and young adults achieving their goals, making friends, high school, grades, sports, music lessons and growing in their spiritual lives. With the oldest marrying and leaving the nest, the others struggling with their inner growth, boyfriends, heartbreaks, graduation and college, the children began to need her less and her arms began to feel lighter and less required....life began to feel different.
Hobbies are good to have and hold on to despite how busy one is. The creative outlet that these jewels provide are life enhancing, inspiring, soul-recovering, and a source of joy. Whether it is gardening, sewing, cooking, or bird-watching, whatever it is, don't let it go...don't forget it, and by all means, don't let it gather dust. Family and hobbies are the best for getting through this life and especially a joyless, drudge job.
