I did something I never thought was tangible. I quit my job. I quit my job. My perfectly stable, full-time ‘desk’ job. What? It still sounds weird to say out loud. Why?
I was tired of my “9-5”
When I got up in the morning, I knew exactly how my day was going to go.
Get up and ready
Get Rowan ready/ drop him off
Go to work
Pick Rowan up
Cook dinner/ clean house
Baths and bed time
And maybe Derek & I would get a few minutes to have a conversation.
Every day after that would be exactly the same for the remainder of the week. I felt like I was in a rut. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my job. (Well, as much as you can love any job.) I love the people I worked with. I’ve said before, you can only be with the same people for so long before you start to form relationships with them. Those ladies are like family.
But that doesn’t change the way I was feeling. I was unhappy, and my marriage and little family were taking the brunt of that unhappiness. We needed a change.
Derek and I talked about it for months and months. We prayed about. We weighed the possible struggles against the many joys that would come with a decision like this.
Sure, it might be hard at first but no adjustment like this is going to be easy. But we are keeping our faith in God and we know ultimately He is the one that will provide for our needs. We made a decision to better our family and the rest we’ll trust in Him. And now here we are.
I quit my job!
I am officially a stay-at-home mom to (almost) two little boys!
Two little boys that get to be home with their mom. Not a daycare center. Not another family member. (Though we have several wonderful ones that took on the task while I was working.) But their mama. And this mama could not be more excited to begin this new season.
