Am I Missing Something?

I have a friend who is a teacher, is involved in our small group of young married couples, and is part of an outreach group in South Tucson. When she talks about being part of her outreach group, it makes me feel like I am missing something in my life. I have the feeling that there is something I could (or should?) be doing with my time that I'm not right now.

Currently, my time is spent by working, attending my small group (assuming I'm not sick, as was the case this week), hanging out with friends from that small group, hanging out with work friends, spending time at home or out with my husband, and spending time alone either out (usually shopping, the library, or working out) or at home (usually playing with the dogs, watching tv, on the computer, or cleaning).

It's funny that I can, in a way, sum up my life in one paragraph! When I read it, it sounds full. But when I'm at home and piddling around the house or spending what I judge to be way too much time on the computer or in front of the tv, that's when I often feel that I'm missing something.

Despite this feeling, I am satisfied in general with how I spend my time. I wonder though, am I missing something? Or is this simply the longing for complete fulfillment that will only come in Heaven?
