This week, I want to share how thankful I am for being a stay at home mom. Not many women get to stay home with their children (or maybe not even want to). Some people can't imagine being at home ALL DAY with five children, but I can't imaging being home ALL DAY without them. Of course, there are days that I want to pull my hair out, or send them to their rooms, and even contemplate about registering them at the closest school! BUT, and that's a big but...I know that God has put me in this position for a reason. It's not because I think I'm more patient than other people (because my kids will tell you that my patience runs low on some days), or that I'm super organized and can "handle it all." It's the total opposite! I know that I can't do it on my own. I need the Lord all the time. On the days where things are going according to plan, I'm so thankful, and on the days where I'm ready to run out of the house, I'm even more thankful! Sounds weird, huh? Now that my two older children are pretty much in their pre-teen years, I see how important it is to keep a watchful eye on things or people that are in their lives. What an awesome privilege I have to be with them..lol..24 hours a day! Yah, that sounded funny just typing it! I'm extremely thankful that the Lord has been providing a way for us to be a one income family for 10 years now! Now, you know that's totally God! My husband loves that I can be home with the kids, and I'm so thankful that he would do anything to keep it that way!!
