I am a bit sad in my heart today. It started yesterday
when I was at a meeting. It has lingered.
This lady at the meeting mentioned that she had been laid off for a few weeks now and is just so bored and does not know what to do with herself. She does now have her children at home with her.
She was so dismayed and disgruntled. She put her *new situation* out there for people to comment. What startled me was the opinions that the others had.
The opinions ranged from sympathy, to I know how that is honey, to hey, read a book.
I mean, I wanted my turn to say. "What???--truly there are not enough hours in a day, to fill my time with things I like to do, or want to do, or more IMPORTANTLY, need to do. I was sad as the women giving ideas were, in my age range,some older, some younger and they did not have ANY good suggestions for this young mother. Is it a wonder that the family is falling apart? So you understand, this was not a Christian meeting.
This is the *WORLD's* thinking. The world has so de-valued the role of a homemaker that when one has no choice but to stay home, they are *LOST* .
I don't know if I will ever have a chance to speak and to encourage this young woman. I am NOT shy, so the fact that I didn't even get to put my .02 worth in was unusual.
I don't know her name, the Lord does.
Homemaking----oh one should never be bored.
Really, I know we all get behind etc...but truly I have so many things that interest me.
I really just wish I had the energy to do all the things that I think about.
Sorry this is so longwinded, at least for me.

Lately life sure has been busy. With illness and such whew, it is like the wind gets knocked out of your sails.
A few updates from my neck of the woods:
Last night I spent the night away and was at my nieces' bridal shower. Oh what a sweet time of fellowship we had. I was asked to do the devotion which was a blessing to me . The wedding is this week.
We have had contractors at our home for two days, my beloved has been off work to be HERE when they are here. The major work we needed done, is almost finished...oh it feels good.
This weekend we will be celebrating our youngest grandsons birthday....Nathan will be 1 !!!!
Very soon my daughter and her family will return from the east coast for a few months, I cannot wait....
Do you realize the time change is this weekend? I for one, am ready for the longer days.
I am dismayed GREATLY over all the changes happening in our country. We need so badly to stay focused and in the WORD and encourage each other. We are deepening our pantry some as I have already seen some prices start to skyrocket.
I think that is it....I am feeling better today..just tired as I stayed up late (rare thing for me) having girl talk with my sister and nieces. Yesterday I was with my other sister and her great kids..oh it is fun to live close to family ...and then I sure did enjoy sitting by my daughter in law Kristi at the shower...we had our own little giggles going on...
How's things in your neck of the woods?
BTW the cross-stitch sampler is something I did while stranded in Germany when we were stationed overseas. I was flying Space-A back to Turkey and it took me 5 days to get a flight...so I stitched and stitched...and stressed and stressed....yep...I did..but I did get back...there....
