I went out to see my friend/mentor the other week and and just as expected, I was caught in traffic on my way to our meeting place. While being stuck in the van, I saw how people were rushing in and out for work and I silently said a little prayer because I was given the opportunity to work from home. But to be honest, it is not an easy-peasy career especially with my three grade schoolers, a demanding husband, a little business on the side and a home to manage. I invest a lot of hard work, perseverance and discipline every.single.day to be able to survive in this kind of work from home set up. Thankfully, I’m on my fifth year and still loving it.
My husband keeps on asking me if I will write a blog post about our 10th year wedding anniversary and I said yes– just to shut him up. It has been three days since we started our countdown to our 11th wedding anniversary and I still haven’t blog about our 10th!
Can you see my “Who Writes Here” portion on the top right side of this blog? I know I should have updated my kids’ ages in there but what made me fully aware that “it has to be changed soon” was my age.
It’s already the month of August, right?
If I have to pick my favourite month, it would be August. I will be turning thirty five on the 23rd and the hubby and I will be celebrating a decade of our marriage on the 19th.
I never saw it coming when my eldest son started schooling. It was when my second daughter entered preschool. And then there were two grade schoolers whom I have to guide and assist to with assignments, projects, and reviews! To top it off, my youngest, at six years old, is also now in first grade.
Doing a simple Mathematics— that’s STRESS times three!
So, where was I all this time?
After my family and I went through some rough times, instead of sulking and asking why such things happen, I learned how to give everything up to the Lord. Giving up, HE fixed everything for us!
And now, we are all moving forward and I’m blogging!
