Thankful Thursday~ happy to be

thankful thursday

I am thankful for what I have and the opportunities I have.  Today I am thankful that I am able to stay home and be a Mom.  I never thought that I would be in this position and be thankful for it. 

But I am, and I know that I will be thankful when my girls are teenagers and I have had this time to build into their lives.  I still struggle with thoughts that I should be working because I would like to do more for my family.  But in the end I would just end up buying more “stuff”.  My daughters don’t need stuff they need their Mom.  My husband may think he needs more “stuff” J, but he needs his wife.

Right now, at this point in my life, I am right where I need to be.  I am thankful for my place and even more thankful that I recognize that this is the right place.
