That is such a big question. The meaning of it all. I can’t answer that. But I can say this....... I don’t think that now I’m a parent my pre kid life had no meaning. It did. To me, at the time. Life is fluid. Always changing. Right. now with young children dependent on you, your purpose is raising them. When they are grown and making their own way in the world your focus will change again. Of course, you will still love them. They will still be the people you love the most. But your purpose will be different.
