The Litmus Test

So how do I, as a wife and mother, know what activities and projects I should be involved in? There are so many good things out there that need to be accomplished. How do I know which of those I should take on?

I think the following is a good litmus test. If the activity drains me so that I don't have as much to give to my husband and children, it is not the right time for me to be involved. If the activity enriches my life so I have more to give my family, that is a worthwhile use of my time.

So what extracurricular activities do we have that enrich us? And which ones do we have that drain us?

This is something I've really had to work on over the years.

Thanks for the reminder. A couple of friends and I were talking about lessons learned just the other night, and this was one of them.
