So, I’ve been pondering a thought on how to entice the younger readers out of their shells a bit. The ones in the same boat that I’m in. You know who you are. The wives and mommies who are trying to figure out how to enhance their marriage with ttwd/dd while trying to juggle tons of other demands on their lives.
(Yup, that's me, most days.)
Maybe you are just into this for play or maybe just discipline or role affirmation or a smattering of everything that ttwd can encompass. Maybe you are seeking to find someone to understand and be a listening ear that can empathize with what you are going through. Yes, there are so many wonderful bloggers out there. I value them like no other. They have helped me come so far in such a little time by answering my questions and listening to my thoughts.
(Just kidding, no other bloggers have been harmed in the making of this post!)
But as many point out they are empty nesters, retired or close to that point. That is a different season of life. One I will not see for many more years to come.
(Yeah, that's me when the man takes all the kids to a double feature for the afternoon!)
(This gives me the giggles!)
(Every day I learn something new!)
I would like to hear from some of my readers who are out there in this stage of life. The ones who may feel as lonely as I do in the middle of this, when you cannot turn your mother or sister or best friend for advice or a listening ear. You can email me. I do not bite. I’m just trying to glean how others get through this and find balance, same as you.
(Yes, unfortunately, I feel like I'm constantly making mistakes and learning from them.)
Yes, we are making progress, and learning, but it just seems like I’m one of the few out there, in this stage of life, trying to make this work. So, feel free to send me an email. Maybe, you and I, can lift one another up and learn from one another. Also, last thought I'd like to share, because as I have written this a few of my children have walked by and wanted to know what I was doing and why I was smiling at no one. I said I was just having a conversation with myself. I was... sort of....out loud.... on paper..... with each of you.
(Yeah, unfortunately, that would be me!)
By the way, this is my 13th post, a true baker's dozen for my first month of blogging, not bad, huh?
