Changing back!

Well remember awhile back when I told you change had come and I was starting work at Arby's? Well change has come again and I'm back home- (where I belong!)

As badly as I thought I wanted to get outside of the house and work I soon discovered that it was not where my heart was. There were several things that brought about my change of heart. First- Arianna is dealing with some issues and God confirmed my decision to quit and stay home by some of the writings she came home from school with last week.

Second- I was only working for 2 hrs a day- from 11:30-1:30. Right smack in the middle of my day so my whole week was shot. Frankly- the 8-10 hrs of work at minimum wage was NOT worth it!

Third- the manager at Arby's- I'm not a huge fan. The days he was there the whole environment changed and not for the better I might add!

This was a real learning experience for me. I thought I was so ready to get out of the house. This just proved to me that my heart is right here with my family and the real desire of my heart is to be a stay at home mom!

I'm praying Mark's job continues to be ok- they did just get 6 machine orders so that's a huge blessing. I am keeping my ears open for possible daycare opportunities but I'm leaving it in God's hands. For right now- I'm right where I belong and my heart is happy and content!

It's totally okay to stay at home where you're needed! :) Hope things work out with Arianna. Just a thought tho...if you want to get out of the house and don't need the extra money, you could always volunteer somewhere. What about volunteering at a school?

i often toss around the idea of going back to work and then i start to think of all i would miss out on with dillon. the money part seems nice to me but in the end it's not worth it to me :)

Good for you. I know you'll enjoy being able to be home with them this summer. Thanks for the kind words on my blog. I just had to get it out. It is so frustrating. Tomorrow is a new day, though, and hopefully it won't hurt as much or make me as angry as it did today. Thanks for being a friend!!

Hi cheri, I am getting back here but I am on alan's computer. It is not so familiar to me.

I have to wait for people to comment on my blog so I can retrace their steps. I don't have anyone's URL at this point.

Hopefully, they can fix my computer real soon.

I am glad to read that you are getting some answers to life's situations.

i'm on that threshold of wondering when the time is right! good for you for stepping out, learning and being confident in what God has asked you to do for now. you are a great MOM!

Gotta love God's timing! You are blessed to be at home and the money will never replace the time you can invest in your children. I always felt so blessed to only work after my kids were all in school and then only part time never leaving them without me or Dave around.

Never, ever feel bad or that you are not contributing by being a stay at home mom! That is the best job in the world! God will reward your faithfulness, and he will give you and Mark exactly what you need. Even if times get tougher, knowing your being obedient is the best place to be! I for one think it's great news!!!
