Thankfulness and Joy
I've been working a part-time job for the past 7 weeks and I have to say I do not enjoy it very much. I would very much like to stay home with the children as I have for the past 7 years, but that just won't happen for awhile.
I used to work part-time when the children were little and I enjoyed it very much, partly because I could take my children with me and spend time with them there.
I've been reminded that we need to be thankful in ALL circumstances that we find ourselves in. Although I do not like leaving for work, I have found it a joy to be able to get most of their schooling done, the house kept in a reasonable state of cleanliness, and three good meals cooked each day. I'm thankful I don't have to work full time and that I'm only gone 4 hours in the late afternoon. I'm thankful for the job, but my heart is wanting to be home. I hope this can be a reality soon.
So......I'm trying to find JOY in the journey!!
