Two of my great friends from work are pregnant. They will both probably go back to work. But it makes me think. A lot.
No, not about myself being pregnant.
But about my job choice after kids.
I truly don't know what I will do. I always thought I would stay home, at least while they are young. Enjoy the first steps. Those moments you just can't miss.
I still kind of think that.
But can I really handle it? I often ask myself that question. And I'm not sure of that either.
But I found this post today (an archived post)...that just made me think.
The title is "On Luck". I just had to link to it. Please read it. I never get many comments, but I would seriously like to know what people think about that. Are you offended when people work and make comments like that? Are you annoyed when stay at home moms act as if they have no choices? Because honestly, I relate more to the stay at home mom. If I stay home, I will give up a lot of income and security. A lot of my own, selfish desires to have a 'real' life. But...I suppose that is a choice that will come.
I know that God has a special plan for that.
It is probably revealed in my bible.
With some quiet prayer and thought, I will probably begin to understand.
So, as I walked in the door, with this on my mind....
This is waiting in the family room...
Look close. What do you see?
You're not sure?
Do you see bits of leather?
Bite marks out of the four gospels?
Bella ate the bible.
She just decided she was mad I was at work, and she ate it.
Is this a sign...
Will my kids feel this way too God?
It made me feel 50% ANGRY and 50% in love with her. Can you resist the face?
So, a good excuse for a cute new travel bible.
And, the debate rages on.
For now, I guess I've got a while to think on it. :)
