Grains



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.

It's hard, isn't it? I'm sure everything will fall into place.

At least you enjoy both of them and have the choice. Keep doing what you are doing, because I know that you are good at being a mother and an educator.

Good for you!!! It's good to step back and remember how lucky we are to be doing what do, whether that be working moms or stay at home moms.

I think you do an outstanding job at both. Have a good week. I will be thinking of you!

I think that is one of the hardest things about becoming a mother - the conflict within yourself to work or stay home! I think you do have an ideal job being a teacher though so you'll get all the same holidays and vacation days :)

Awwww. You've written this up as both a celebration and a sorrow. I think most of life is like that, right? Anyhow, as you know, I'm totally with you on this one. Amen.

I love my work too. It is hard to do when our kids are so little, though. I hear you.
