I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day with special memories you will hold dear to your heart! Being a ‘Mother’ is a very special occupation! 🙂 I remember when I was a new Mother, a full time Mom & there were some that couldn’t figure out what I did everyday….all day….at home….’no job’ as they would say……I guess I didn’t look at it that way….my ‘job’ was Mom & Wife…..for me, that was full time enough! I never wanted to look back & feel like I didn’t put my everything into raising my children. I don’t hold anything against anyone that has children & works outside the home, especially now days!….but for me…..it was too much for me to do that…..I needed to focus on my husband, my children & my home.
Our children are now grown, 23, 22 & 19, two married & we are to be Grandparents come June!! We are soo excited as we enter another phase in our life of being Grandparents!
Tho’ our children are grown, some would ask ‘Why not get a full time job now?’ Well, I still feel like a full time Wife, Mom & soon to be Grandma! For my husband & I, this is what works best!….doesn’t mean it’s been easy financially, etc., we’ve had many ups & downs & times when it’s either been feast or famine but it’s all been worth it!
Different things work for different couples. So for all of you not yet, new or old Mother’s out there, whatever works for you, put all you can into your children…..doesn’t mean you’ll be a perfect parent, doesn’t mean you’ll have perfect kids, doesn’t mean it’ll be easy but it means you will be able to look back, feel good & feel like you put all you could into your children to make the world a better place because it’s what this world needs too!
