This week, as I face going back to work full time, I am trying really hard to be grateful for that. I have a good education and a career that I felt called to do. When I think of the situation that some women are in, living in this very same city, I am so glad that I have a job. Something that I love to do. Something that helps us live in the house that we do, maintaining the life that we do.
Being a working mother has been a role that I sometimes have mourned, but this morning I am being thankful.
Thankful for my education and for my career, two things that I so often take for granted.
