Echoes of Elul Day 20: New Found Time

By Shani Boone

As the mother of an almost 20 year-old and almost 18 year-old son, new beginnings are apparent in our home. The boys are independent, no longer needing a parent home to “watch” them or drive them around, and this means lots of adult time for Roger and me. We are not necessarily empty nesters yet, but it’s close. How do we find ourselves spending this new found time? Often with our Chavurah/Temple friends and family and heading to Temple a lot more often than before. We also find ourselves always looking forward to our next weekend adventure or “big” vacation!

New beginnings are happening for me personally as well, as I start the second 50 years of the life I hope to live. I have found a healthy lifestyle that includes great food options, a fun and motivating workout regimen and determination to be healthy, so I can continue an active lifestyle for many years to come. Cheers to new beginnings for us personally and for our TBS community!
