Sitting here on the couch this evening I’m reminded of how lucky and loved I am. Sometimes it’s so easy to get overwhelmed and forget these two simple things. The baby is down for the night, Sean and Jasmine are in the kitchen making dessert, the football game is on and I am sitting here with my laptop. I was working but quickly felt the need to type out this post.
My husband works so hard, day in and day out, he does whatever he can to provide for us and never asks for much in return. I’m blessed to be able to stay home and raise our two kids. I choice to stay home, it’s a sacrifice we both decided to make. I left the work force and we became a single-income family. I could be out working, away from home, leaving the kids in daycare, but my husband and I both decided that me staying home would be best.
Being a working at home mom isn’t the easiest job, often I think it’s the hardest. I work full-time from home and still mange to raise two kids, cook, carpool, clean, and look lovely each evening Sean walks through the door, well at least I try, got to keep that spark alive. Some nights I’m still in my pajamas when he rolls in from work, he loves me just the same. My days are so redundant, sometimes heading to the grocery store by myself in the evening is a treat, or a mini-vacation.
I guess the purpose of this is to say, life is tough, there are downs and there are ups. More often than not the ups are so much better and totally outweight the downs. This evening was nice, I won’t soon forget it. I’m blessed and loved by many.
I seriously love my family. Things get crazy around here, sometimes I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs. At the end of the day we are family. Sean and I made these two incredible humans, it’s up to us to set good examples and not let the craziness get to us or show.
I think this is maybe 1 of 3 photos we have with all four of us. I’m not picky, I’ll take what I can get.
