“Mommy’s going to be done with her job in a few weeks. I’ve helped ladies for a while now, but it’s time for me to spend my best time helping you kiddos. Do you know what that means?”
“What?!” they queried excitedly.
“It means that mommy won’t be answering e-mails or looking at my phone during the day time.”
The two oldest let out a whoop and a holler.
Truth be told, they whoop and holler about nearly everything from breakfast cereal to seeing a gnat on the wall, so perhaps this conversation a couple weeks ago wasn’t as exciting as it appeared to be.
It’s true. I’m done being employed for the foreseeable future, other than the prospect of being a missionary’s wife and support person.
It’s been a satisfying foray into the workforce, and I’ve learned so very much in the process.
For now, I’ll be here, educating my kids and myself and enjoying the beautiful things in life, and being constantly reminded of how very little I know.
I’m delving into a lot of self-improvement and self-education in the evenings, so hopefully I’ll gather time to share what I’ve been reading and learning.
