Ok so I have to get this out. It seems lately that in my house/family, We are all just sharing a house. There isn't any real feelings of afftections, or love. Just a mutual respect for the fact that we share a home and family...My kids are still my kids and there is no loss of love there between me and

Now that you are working outside the home, how about starting a weekly coffee date ritual with DH. The first time or two might be conversation shy but after a couple weeks it could be just what the doctor ordered. Being more of a listener and less of a talker (HUGE issue for me. Love to talk.lol) is the key to the cuople coffee date I think. I enjoy them. DH and I had one Sunday night. It was so nice. It's been a long long time since we've had time for just one another. It was 2 hours of bliss for me. I'll be praying about this Karen. This is just in season in life that too will pass. May your home become more than a B&B. May God bless all that you do and bring everyone closer inside your walls.

Your sister in Christ,
