So what have I done today. It's 12:30 and I've already made breakfast then cleaned up the kitchen, made homemade laundry detergent, canned homemade apple butter, scheduled an installation appointment for DH, washed 2 loads of clothes, and now I'm eating my lunch and typing up a blog post.
Woosh.... I'm tired!
Actually the rest of my day is fully scheduled too!
After I finish my sandwich I have 2 embroidery orders to fill, and then I need to get started on the many things that I have to make before the Tinsel & Treasure show.
Charlie asked me this morning if I was happy just being his housewife. I just smiled and said I love it! I couldn't ask for more. He then said but we don't have as much as we had when we were both working. I asked him if that bothered him. He of course said NO and that he loved having me at home. I then reminded him that things are not important to me and never have been. As long as he is good with it then I am very happy. I feel like the Lord has me just where he wants me to be.
We don't have the things that we used to have. We don't eat out as often. I haven't been to the mall in months. You know what? I don't care! I love saving us money by making our laundry detergent. I love grocery shopping knowing that the meals I make are healthy. I love the sense of accomplishment I get by managing the office side of Charlie's business. I schedule his appointments, create & send in the invoices, and manage all the office stuff. I guess my 'job' with Singleton Services gives me my office fix that I need every once in a while.
I also love that I have time to create things. I love to sew and I really like knowing that my creations are going to someone special. I put my heart & soul into every item that I make.
My children, although in college, act like they like me being at home too. They come home every day and sit in the kitchen just to talk to me. I feel like I'm more involved in their lives then I've ever been. I no longer make their decisions but I do pray with them and for them as they are making decisions that will effect the rest of their lives. I know that they love the home cooked meals that await them.
Well, my sandwich is gone and it's time for me to get back to work.
~Good Day to you all and Many Blessings,
