Choices. Please...

Friday, September 28, 2007

Lately, i am really into deep thoughts and introspection: should i be given choices, i would rather be a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM). i know many of you out there would be in great protestations about this idea of mine. but still i would choose to be home. why? one would probably ask. i have very basic answer: because home is where life-long, long-term priorities are nurtured and performed.
Yes, many will say i am earning a considerable amount enough to help meet the family's finances but financial matters are temporary issues. However, taking care of my daughters to be God-fearing, values-oriented citizens (later)and soon-to-be women of substances are more pressing than fleeting, material things.
But right now, choices are not within my reach. i am still (feels forever) dreaming of being at home when my kids arrive from school, preparing my family's clothes and beddings, my husbands home-cooked meals and all the matters that concern in making our house a home! Sigh!
But God is not a passive God. If it will really benefit my family, He will grant my prayers!

    I know that you would like to be a stay at home mom...
    that is the dream of most of us... but if your life is not able to do that now (probably because your sweet husband is starting his own business)... you can still be the mom that God wants you to be...
    it does take lots of effort because when you work... you don't have the time...
    but instead of counting the Quantity of time you spend with your family... Count the Quality and make every minute count... this is when you have to Not worry about a little bit of dirt... or some dishes left unwashed...
    sit down and read a story or play a game with the children...that is what they will remember...
    and maybe in a few years you will be able to stay at home with them... but in the meantime do not get discouraged because you are not able to right now!!
