My new job!

Yes, you read that title right! After working in finance for 10 years and teaching reading to primary school students for 3, I have decided to change careers. :)

I am a homemaker! <3

I was planning on my last day of work to be December 7th, but because of my borderline blood pressure, my OB decided to take me out early to rest and try to keep my BP from rising any higher. So my last day of work was Tuesday, November 27th.  Tuesday was a tough day. I love those children at my school so much! I love my coworkers as well. Luckily, I know I will stay in touch with some of my coworkers and that makes me so happy. :)

A lot of people ask, "why do you want to stay home"?  Being a stay-at-home-mommy has been my dream since a very young age. I went to college, I got a real job, I got married and added two beautiful stepdaughters to my heart. Oh, how I wanted to stay home with them even. We have them every other week, so why not? But of course, logically, that didn't make sense at the time, so I decided to take on a part time job at the school.  I was working 8-2 and my first year there was my youngest DSD last year at that school.  I loved working there and seeing her smiling face every day.  I loved being able to get off of work before they got home from school. I cherished those moments so much.

Now that I am about to embark on this new journey of mommyhood, there is and was no question as to whether or not I would go back to work.  I am very blessed that financially, my husband and I are able to have me stay home.  Money will be tighter, of course, but oh how it will be worth it. :)

Let me spend a second on my sweet hubby. My husband works very long hours. He is on the management team at our local Chevrolet and Toyota dealerships, so he is busy. all. the. time. He works very hard. He puts in a lot of time, energy, effort, and heart into his job. He is great at his job. I am so proud of him. <3 Because he puts in on average 12 hour days, I of course want his home to be a haven and sanctuary for him to come home to.  I am so blessed that he not only "allows" me to stay home, but he supports it as well. He wants me to be a homemaker. To those of you mama's who are feel like you and your husband are not on the same page as far as staying home, please pray about it. Five years ago, that is how my husband and I would have been and of course as the head of this home, he would have made the decision for me to work.  But God works in mysterious ways and I am so blessed that I am married to a man who knows home is where my heart is. <3  Just last night, after 2 days home, he looked at me and said "honey, you have the glow" I asked him if he was talking about the pregnancy glow. He said "no, you have the glow from being home, this is where you are supposed to be". Thank you, God, for giving me such a loving, supportive husband.

With that, this long post, I want to say that I am so excited about staying home.  I strive to be the wife rare as rubbies.  Days are not always going to be easy, especially when Ty arrives. Some days, I may run out of hours! But I am so excited, blessed, thankful, and honored to be serving my husband and my family at home.

Proverbs 31:10-31

A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
