Today, I was so grateful for my job.

Today, I wanted to quit my job.

Today, I couldn't quit my job... instead, I cried.

Get the picture?

This is a frequent occurence for me. We try and figure out a way for me to stay home more. We fail. We bring it up and try again. We fail again. And yet, when I receive an answer to prayer that I need to be staying home and we finally figure out a possible way...we still cant make it work.

This is where we are.

Any suggestions? Cause all this crying is making my eyes hurt.

And that's how Suze sees it.

When you receive an answer to prayer that you need to be staying home, then there's just no other solution than being at home. Does that mean quitting your job and finding a job you can do from home? Does that mean working part time? Who knows... well, hopefully you will know & figure it out but I sure don't know. Answers to prayers are tough sometimes. Good luck, Lady!

I would suggest to stop dwelling on the fact that you have to work. These are the sacrifices you have to make when you have children at a young age and not being able to afford them comfortably. Everyone has to work, and not everyone likes their job... and not everyone likes to be away from their children, but we have to make sacrifices. Be grateful that you even have a job because their are a ton of people, who can't even keep a roof over their children's head or food in their stomachs, because they've been laid off due to the economy. You're setting a good example for your children by showing them that working hard pays off. There will be a day that you will be able to stay home with your children and you'll appreciate it so much more because of what you had to go through and sacrifice in order to get there. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel, so instead of wasting all of your energy on the negative, look towards the future and know that this will one day pass. Be grateful that you are able to come home to happy and healthy children at the end of the day.... and be grateful that they are still with you and that you are able to hold them each night.
