Thankful Thursday…today I am taking the sweetest eight-year old out for lunch and some fun for her birthday – just the two of us! She (and her brother and sister) just make my heart happy! As I was thinking about my day..it occurred to me how fortunate I am to have the time to enjoy such special times. And, today, I am thankful to be a homemaker and stay-at-home mom! It is, indeed, a privilege.
I am thankful for a husband that shared the desire for me to stay at home when our daughter was born. He has worked hard and sacrificed much to allow me to do so. I did work for several years when all the children were in school – at their school in exchange for tuition. I mention this simply to say that God has provided all our needs throughout the years and I am thankful. Of course, there were challenges and sacrifices but God has always been faithful.
We are now done with school (homeschooling and otherwise) but I am so enjoying making a home for my family. I don’t know what plans God may have for me in the future – it may involve working again – but I am grateful for this time. I am thankful for a flexible schedule..time for Bible study, time for friends, time for service and some time for fun lunches with adorable eight year olds!! God is good!
