The Journey from Stay at Home Mom to Working Mom

The Journey from Stay at Home Mom to Working Mom

The craziest thing happened Monday morning. I woke up, got dress, left the house without my kids and became a working mom! At five years old I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up…A Mom! This direction has never really changed. In high school I use to pretend like I had huge career plans and lofty dreams. My friends wanted to be doctors and lawyers. I wanted to be a wife and a mom! For the last six years I have been “Living My Dream” as my husband likes to say. My “dream” has involved tantrums and triumphs, messes and milestones, sleeplessness and sweet surprises. I have loved (almost) every minute of mommyhood. Over the last few months, little by little, the Lord has prepared me for a new chapter in life. I am on a journey from stay at home mom to working mom! The next few months will be speckled with highs and lows as I settle into this new rhythm of life. God’s Grace will be my guide as I traverse this new territory. Grace is my theme for the coming months. I have a lot to learn in this area and I welcome your comments as I grapple with grace.   Share...
