I was watching 'A Family That Preys" byTyler Perry and one of the questions that was asked was, "are you living or just existing?"
The lady answered the question by saying, "Well I have kids and they need me!"
The lady thought about it some more and realized that her children were human beings that had more influences in their lives than just her. She also realized that she had put so many people before her.
Well I have recently noticed that I am doing the same thing. I make sure that my husband and children's clothes are cleaned and iron every morning. I cook and do a little cleaning.
My husband is the Minister of Music at our church. I have taken on the Dance Ministry, Children's Church and at one time also the youth Bible study and Director of the Youth choir. My mother thinks that I have lost myself. I see it as joining him in the ministry.
Am I just existing? Am I just an extension of my husband?
