This.Is.Fabulous. I've felt alone and isolated until reading this. I'd concluded my head was what needed adjusting, and have for some years done the work. Still doing it with great results. But now, to realize others have walked this path as well, makes me feel so good! Like a walk on the beach good. Very clearly written, Debra. It sounds like you and I are in the same place in our lives: milestones on the parental front, husbands requiring our thoughtfulness and problem-solving, mustering the courage to let go, and embracing the idea of change and new paths. Well done! You've hit home with me and encouraged me to keep on keeping on. Thank you!
