another day

Another day... another day is flying right past me. 

and I need to be reminded of what is important.

Somebody yesterday said to me...

" Are you a stay at home Mom? Wow you are so lucky."

She was a young single Mom.

I am lucky. {I think.}  I have a husband who values a Mom being at home raising their children.

I am not lucky, I am blessed that I am able to do that. In the area that we live it is a rarity.

 think   know a lot of woman that work outside their homes look down on Mom's that stay home.

I have done both. I have worked a 40 plus hour a week, and believe me it was the hardest thing I have ever done to leave my kids. I was blessed that my sister was able to be with my youngest  {sara, who was only 2 at the time} but it I had no choice as I had become a single Mom.

So it hit me hard when the young single Mom said those words to me last night. "You are so lucky!"
Yes, I am. My Father has so  graciously blessed me. He restored my marriage to my husband. Which didn't seem humanly possible... and he has gifted us another beautiful child, Madelyne. and he has allowed me to be at home with all three of our girls again.

 Luke 1 : 37
                      For nothing is impossible with God.

Blessed is right! Thanks for sharing so openly and honestly Amy. I had no idea that your marriage to Dom nearly failed and you had to be a single Mom for awhile. That is incredible! The fact that you guys were able to restore your marriage?!? Wow. Praise Be!!
I know exactly what you mean about being a stat-at-home Mom. I don't get looked down upon much here, but it is certainly a rarity,and one that people don't understand. Why have children and then ship them off for someone else to raise?! I don't get it. I too am blessed with a husband who values the mother staying at him, and God has provided me with a wonderful provider who makes it possible. God is good!!
