Well on Wednesday I officially started my new job as a stay at home mom! Right before Christmas God made it very obvious to me what I should do. I had battled this decision for 11 months and was completely torn. I went back and forth, back and forth. I absolutely loved my job at the church. I did administration for the elementary ministries there. I was in my 6th year and wasn't sure if I could give it up. The team I worked with was like my 2nd family. They have been there for me through it all, prayed non-stop for Marc and I and have been so gracious. I really was unsure how I would ever live without them.
After my first day back I knew my heart wasn't there anymore. The work was clearly not my passion and my heart was with my baby at home. Then on Tuesday afternoon Marc's bosses threw out an option for me to work from home for their company managing some social media for Field Agent. I was so excited and knew right then God was making a way for me to be at home with our miracle baby. On Wednesday I told them and then that next Thursday was my last day. I got to leave on good terms and was able to give myself closure. It was so affirming to me after being there for 2 weeks.
I'm so thankful that I'm able to do this and that Marc is excited for me to stay home. I will forever be grateful for that job because the insurance I had through it made it possible for me to do ivf. If it weren't for that job and insurance we would have never been able to do it, so for that I feel like i owe them everything and we will forever be thankful!
So my first 2 days went well and I could not be more excited to enter this new stage of life. I feel like I've always been jealous of those that stay home with their babies, but never thought I would be cut out for it. I do know it won't always be easy or fun, but I don't think I will ever regret it. I would be sad missing all the "firsts" and the fun in between!
Any words of advice for this new SAHM?!
