I made it my goal to always be there for my children. I did this because I NEVER wanted to miss out on ANY of the wonderful things my children did. Since I was 5 years old, I wanted to be a mom. I wanted to bake the cookies when they got home from school and share in each and every one of their wonderful memories. I had to work outside of the home for 1 year and it was definitely the worst year of my life. Every day was torture - leaving my children in the care of strangers, listening to their cries as I headed to the door.
So now, I stay home with my children. That doesn't mean I can't make an income, though. I most certainly can. I've been an independent contractor for many years now. I've transcribed, done data entry work, I've completed surveys and now I own my own businesses. Maybe they don't add up to a fortune, but I am here with my kids and I DO contribute to our household income.
I've written a journal post of some wonderful work at home jobs. Please check it out. And if it's YOUR goal to be there for your children every step of the way - DON'T GIVE UP!! It IS very possible for you to be a WAHM, too.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won if he'd stuck it out. Don't give up, though the pace seems slow - You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than It seems to a faint and faltering man; Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup, And he learned too late, when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out - The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are - It may be near when it seems afar; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit - It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
Dear Mother and Father God - Surround me with a White Light of the Holy Spirit, A Gold Light of Christ Consiousness, A Purple Light of Spirituality, A Silver Light of Higher Consciousness, Cement my Intellect to my Emotion, Release all Negativity within, And keep all Negativity from entering. These things I ask in God's Name.
The Hope of Glory By Ric Shumacher
Christ is the light of my mind; Illumined are my thoughts. Christ is the love of my heart; Compassionate are my words. Christ is the strength of my hands; Helpful are my deeds. Christ is the power of my legs; Effortlessly I walk the path. Christ is the understanding of my eyes; Pure is my vision. Christ in me my all; Christ in all I see.
