I'm a Stay-at-Home Mom.


Hey y'all!
I'm just finishing up birthday season around here.  One more party, then it's fall!  In the last three weeks, Amy turned 12, Michael turned 14, and Emily is now sweet sixteen and never been kissed.  I just like my kids. My oldest, Matthew, is 22.  He's out on his own now, but calls and comes by often.  It's been so neat to have the privilege of being with my children as their personalities and interests develop.  I wouldn't trade being a stay-at-home mom for anything.  I never made a paycheck that was worth the relationships I have with my four children.

Thank you Lowell!
Thank you God!

Thankful to be Momma

P.S.  Big myth, your husband has to make a lot of money if you're going to stay home.  Truth, you have to stretch your money if you're going to stay home.

  2. Hi Dorothy,
    Thank you for taking time to talk back to me. It's a great encouragement. I'll be over for a visit soon. It seems I don't have much time for reading or writing right now.

  3. My mom's time spent as a stay-at-home mom was very influential in the close bonds my sister and I have with her. I am 39, and I spend every Saturday almost with my mother. I think being an adult makes me appreciate her even more... Thank you, Lord, for my mom!

    Thank you for sharing your love for your family!!!

    Love,
    Heather

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
Laura
