empty nester who loves it

that is so depressing. i don’t know about you but I’m loving my new normal. my kids are grown and now i’m taking time to discover who I am. i love when the kids come over but i also love when it’s quiet. I can finally hear myself think. i can take care of myself. I know you mean well but a poem about how each stage in life is full of opportunity and joy would be better served…

B”H Thank you for putting those sentiments out there; poignant, eloquent. When I was a young Mom, decades ago, my Grandfather, OBM was visiting us.

Thank you for sharing your profound messages with us each week. A few weeks ago yaught that there is only Hashem. This really helped me when i learned the Alter Rebbe’s teaching in Tanya that from Hashem’s perspective there is only Him.

Miryam, as a comtemporary, I can completely grasp and relate to your message of not pushing time. When my three eldest children, now grandparents, were babies in diapers (cloth!), someone gave me a wonderful piece of advice: Don’t blink!
