In this place, I’m just me. There is silence to just be. There are no children calling for me. There is no one filling my ears with small talk. There are no deadlines. I go here and I try to just go blank. I go here to just stop the thinking. There are no messages to interrupt me. There are no piles of clutter to frazzle my mind.
It may be something many moms fear to admit or finally admit to while keeling over with guilt but the bottom line is this: family life is work and just like any job, you need a real break. The key words here are “real break”. Husbands, if you want to enrich your family life and strengthen bonds across the board, pack your wife’s bags and send her away– on a Wednesday.
