When I was a very young woman and mother and wife;
I really can not remember feeling lonely;
I do remember wondering if I would even be able to find 5 minutes to myself.
After my children were grown and left home;
I dare say I went into a terrible funk...
I felt my whole purpose in life had flown out the window.
Raising children really is a full time job,
No one ever told me or even warned me of how sad I would feel when
That season would be over how I might just feel!
I remember telling my sister how sad and lonely I felt;
Well, she told me this
This my dear is your reward...
To do and be and to create and read and craft and crochet,
And to bake and clean the house and it stays clean.
Laundry that only requires 2-3 loads a week!
Now, what I am saying is this was a healthy perception of this
Very lonely dilemma.
I spent many years remaking my days and outlook on life!
The purpose of this post is to all you wonderful and blessed mommies
And it is very wise to keep ideas and thoughts in your heart
Some things you would like to do when you become an EMPTY HOME.
But, I also want to say make the time and the relationship with your HUSBAND
In the top priority NOW...
Yes, I have said in the past, I do get lonely especially in the evenings.
But also this is when I do feel a bit emotional and spent from a long day.
It seems that I always thought I would have more friends,
And all my family around me.
But they now have their own lives and some have moved far away.
So, I trust the Lord and I keep moving forward...
I miss many things, but I am still learning to take pleasure in the
Keep your heart free from living
to much in the past.
Keep your eyes on the eternal price.
Keep asking the Lord, where and what He wants you to do!
Keep your heart at HOME even if everyone has moved on!
I do wonder if it is maybe even harder for women who have worked
Also, I have had many friends that have gone back to work
I do hope someone will find a bit of encouragement from this post!
I do know I still enjoy the fellowship and yet everything now days
Does seem to be what others call squeeze it in...
Remember the word does tell us to leave in cleave
Honor the Father and thy Mother
Do not forsake the assembling together.
Everything changes according to His will in all our lives!
