The most important thing is STILL the most important thing
Recently I have had decision-making and a gamut of emotions related to my choice to make caring for my children my full-time work.
I thought I had made that choice when I left my job 10 years ago. But some choices you have to make again and again.
Sometimes I start to think that the only answer (when medical bills come in, insurance comes due, more groceries are needed, we'd like to take a trip, the car breaks down, we need supplies to fix something on our house, etc.) is for me to get a job. But what I've come to learn, again....is that my place here is important.
Important in my children's lives and in the greater plan God has for my life. Someday I may work. Maybe soon, maybe not. But today I am here. And it is richly rewarding to watch my son play legos while I am holding him and breathe in the scent of his head, and know that he is still the most important thing.
