I am learning to rejoice in other things than mothering and wifing. That is new. I am making new friends, some who have children the ages of mine and some not. My season has been so long. I had nothing to compare it to, because my mommy was in retirement from mothering eons before she was my age. Now, I know why. My health must become a priority in this season. I hear that so many women suffer from heart disease after the "change". I hate this season physically. I should have trained for it more dedicatedly. Flashes and tiredness and emotional upheaval, nothing at all like I imagined.
Work is a great distraction from my infirmities. I think everyday of some story or another to share with my little ones and I try to come home to my family with a part of myself that I shared with customers as well as the grumpy me that they are used to.
There is more to life than babycare and husbandcare, but what? That is the quest for the new millenium for me. Maybe business projects. Maybe a book? I am trying to develop a website? Jack of All Trades, Master of None? Taking on the tasks and speaking my mind to these strong Walker personalities is the lesson of the day.
I am a woman, Hear me pray, On my knees everyday. I trust God too much to let you get me down...:)
