I am a career mom and wife and I am living in the moment. I love it that way. I'm more than that, as we all are.... but home is truely where my heart is.
I work part time in Advertising where I have been for many years. I was originally planning to build my "career" in that world, but babies change many things! I learned early on that my choosen "career" path was one that is filled with the pressure of endless deadlines and impossible schedules.... Not exactly great for young families.
My son was then born with a heart condition which seems to be very much under control, but the first couple of years were scary. After he was born, I kept working because I HAD to.... and I missed out on being a mom far too frequently because of it. I prayed to get fired or sick- anything to let me be home. Finally God showed me that it was up to me and I could change it any time I was ready. I decided then and there not to let this continue to happen. My husband (not a Christian) was rather easily convinced to my surprise.... and now... a year later we have managed to rearrange our lives so that I can be home more.
Having this gift business on the side is helping me pay for the fun things in life... From Chuck E. Cheese trips to days at the park, my husband and son come first now and I plan to keep it that way.
Thanks for helping me!
