I have a friend who puts me to shame. Sue picks up her twin grandkids from preschool every day and bathes them. She then prepares dinner for her daughter and son in law. When they return home from work, she goes to her home to prepare supper for herself and her husband. In her spare time, she works in two gardens: hers and her daughter’s.
Sue is an immigrant from a Southeast Asian country and has a degree from a local university. Her husband and three children are all medical doctors. Her husband intends to retire at the end of the year, and one of their children will take over his practice. Sue expects her husband to work in the two gardens and help with the grandkids.
A third grandchild will be born this summer, so there will be even more work involved. But, you won’t hear Sue complaining. She truly enjoys her lifestyle.
How does this grab you? Would you be willing to do all of this, too? I am not sure I would. Her energy surpasses mine, that’s for sure!
