I may not be the most positive person around, and I may complain a lot about my life, but there's one thing for certain--I definitely do love being able to stay home with my children and have that as my job, my career. It's the only thing I ever really dreamed of doing, and I can't imagine myself doing anything else.
So tonight, when my daughter said her prayer at bedtime, and thanked Heavenly Father that "Mommy can stay home with us", my heart just melted. It's actually the second time she has said that in a prayer--the last time was in a family prayer over the weekend.
My children are very aware that I stay home with them while many of their peers have mothers who are gone a lot and have expressed to me gratitude that I am always there and completely available to them. I do have my hobbies and activities that keep me busy, but they are right when they say that I am always there, ready to help them out when they need it most. I never have a project or something that will keep me from them because it's something that needs to get done. They are my work, and I am grateful for that!
