Second chances

I have not worked since July of 2009. During that time, I have learned that I have an identity that doesn't come from the work I do. I have learned to let myself daydream, dawdle, and take time for whatever is interesting me at the moment. I want to find ways to spend my extra my time that make me feel useful.

Hi Sara, and thank for the goodie! We have 8 granddaughters and 6 grandsons, 10 of whom live within walking distance to our home, so our nest is rarely empty for long. Congratulations on your new little one. Be sure to post the news when he arrives and I will pray for a safe delivery in the meantime.

Sara--I see your blogs on the Almost Empty Nester page but I don't know you! Hello! Good luck on your "no smoking"--that is a tough habit to quit! I hope your Easter ended up pleasant--we only had one DD home and the friends we invited decided they couldn't come. Oh, well--we celebrate as we caN!

Thank you for the thoughtful goodie! I am trying to find the USB cord for the camera so I can upload some photos from our trip and use them in a blog or two. Maybe I should just blog without photos?
