I do have something to leave with you today, though:
Recently, due to a list of events that I won't go into here, I've been kind of thinking about the possibility of going back to work:
- Just putting Tyler into a public school; maybe he'll get the therapy and such that he needs (ha, ha)
- Just putting Jason into K4, which seems to be the trend this year. What if I don't and he's behind the rest of his classmates next year?
- Just putting Justin into daycare.
- After all, I'm college educated and have great experience. I should be able to get a good job and help with our rising expenses.
This morning my boys and I were sitting in chapel, waiting as the student body filed in. My daughter's teacher stopped and leaned towards me.
"I just want to say 'Thank you' for being a stay-at-home mom. It really is important."
I was very surprised and just said an awed "uh, thanks!" as she walked away.
Then I just closed my eyes and thanked God for a word fitly spoken.
I don't know why she thought to say that to me today, but it was the right words at the right time.
Being a stay-at-home mom IS important.
