A weekly course about the Joys of Staying Home

I'll start out by saying...How much I LOVE being a Professional Homemaker. It gives me more time to spend with my kids and My Hubby. I have time to learn and teach and grow...everyday! I'm a better person because I have the opportunity to Stay Home with my family. Thank You, My Dear Hubby!

I didn't always feel this way though. I loved working and hated working at different and times in my life. I would feel so good about working, then I just felt ROBBED of time with my family. I felt so torn between my obligations to Family and to Work. A quote made my decision to Stay Home a lot easier...

"Children will not remember you for the material things you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them." -Richard L. Evans

This is true....I tried it!! I asked my kids, when they were complaining about not having what 'ALL' thier friends had. I told them I would go to work so they could have those things. Immediately, they shouted NO! I rest my case!

So, in the weeks to come...I will be sharing what I think about being a Professional Homemaker!

For today, I will tell you....Being a PH is something YOU GET to do, not something YOU HAVE to do. There is a big difference. Cherish the time you have with your family and be grateful for it!

Your Homework: Write a note to your hubby and kids, telling them how much you love them.
