Question

Ok, so I raised six children and did my best. My husband and I have been married for 37 years and now find ourselves, literally, in trouble. The children are all on their own, with jobs, two are married, and our first grandchild was born this past October. I cannot find my bearings. A lot of depression, contract as a teacher not renewed, looking for work, worked for the U.S. Census Bureau, still looking. My children are supportive, but insist that I get a job. I don't see them much anymore. We may loose our house. I used to be highly motivated as long as my role as a mother was a high priority, but now...well, what would you recommend?
