Wednesday, February 2, 2011
Well I have just completed my first month as a stay at home mom and I LOVE it!!! It was a very hard decision for me to quit my job & stay home to Brandon it was a no brainer but just the thought of not working scared me for some reason?!? I have always worked sometimes two jobs went to school full time coached all of Kinley's sports team (cheer, soccer,tumbling,competitive cheer) & still found myself bored at times. So on my last day of work I said my goodbyes with tear filled eyes not knowing what the next day would be like. I cried on the way home thinking what did I do I gave up a job that I loved & was very good at I just loved working with the kids. But as soon as I walked in my front door Hudson gave me the biggest smile & the Lord gave me the best sense of peace I have ever had, that was the first time I knew this is exactly what I am meant to do. So with that said this has been one of the best months of my life :) I love spending every minute with this precious baby of mine. I love having dinner made for my sweet family when they get home. I love being able to have a special dessert made for Kinley because she loves it & has a sweet tooth like her mama;) I love being able to spend more time doing my devotional. I love having playdates with all of my sweet friends. But most of all I just love doing what I know God has planned for our family & I have no doubt that this is exactly what he wanted for us!
