What if it doesn’t feel like a choice?
I’ll be honest. Sometimes my alarm goes off and the thought crosses my mind – Ugh. If only I didn’t work! I could sleep in!
Let’s ignore the fact that I am well aware of the fact that kids don’t sleep longer just because Mom wants them to. Let’s also ignore the fact that I know full well that stay-at-home-moms hardly have a life of leisure. I get it. But my brain forgets that before the sun rises.
We all have those moments when we peek over the fence to see greener pastures. But what if you don’t just have moments – you have full-length daydreams – and long to be at home?
What if you don’t think you were called to be a working mom?
I think that deserves some good attention, so I will be running a 4-part series on the process of coming home. Series posts will publish on Tuesday/Thursday of this week and next.
Know that if you’re in a place where you don’t believe it’s possible, it is. Easy? No. Possible? Yes. It might not be next week, next month, or even next year but it can happen. God is bigger. And if He has called you to be home full-time, He’ll get you there.
I also want to invite my friends (especially my stay-at-home-mom friends!) to participate in and contribute to this discussion. Clearly, this wasn’t my path and I’m not an expert – these are just my thoughts. As we move through the series, tell me what I missed, what I got wrong, or maybe even got right! 🙂
Help me help those ladies who want to come home.
