I had no other aspirations, I wanted to be a full time stay at home mom. That was a high priority for me and that's where I set my goals. The Lord has blessed me with a good spouse, very healthy children and the privilege of staying at home mom and my kids are my greatest passion.
Children are your greatest joy and biggest heartache but I feel being a parent is the most important job you could ever have. It is a serious responsibility you have as a parent in shaping and molding this new human in your care to be their own person one day.
It's not an easy job, it doesn't pay monetarily but the reward is priceless. The satisfaction of a job well done compares to nothing that I have found. Raising healthy, stable children is a privilege that not everyone gets to experience..
I understand there are many walks of life to being a parent and many different type of parents. I have been very, very fortunate.
Parenting is a building and growing process. You, as a parent learn and grow in many different areas from your children just as your children learn and grow from you.
Parenting is never the same, it changes with each year our children get older. I encourage you to join in if you would like to comment or share about your experiences.
I hope you can stay awhile and visit.
