As I sat home today spending some time outside with my girls enjoying the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, I was talking to another single mom about typical things. Kids, work etc …
Our girls go to the same schools and play with each other, when time and lifestyles permit. As we were sharing about our current “work” situations, I noticed she mentioned several times how fortunate I was.
I think today was the first day, she really realized that I actually have a home office and the flexibility to be home MOST days when my daughter’s arrive from school. She then relayed to me that most days, she makes it to the afterschool program just in time to pick up her daughter at closing time which is 7pm.
By that time, I began to understand, why I really am fortunate. I’ve heard complete horror stories of complete abandonment, absentee parentism and no-child support. But even in the midst of my chaotic Life Interruption which did include 2 out of the 3 issues stated, I am so glad that God allowed His light to shine on through.
Every day I wake up, I am quite thankful that I’m able to work the schedule that best suits my daughters during this early stage in their lives, and Truth be told, that best suits ME as well.
Now, more than ever, I so value the “me” time I get and can sneak away with, even if for a short moment, while their at school. Now, more than ever, I so value the time I’m able to sneak away with my Master to make sure He pours into me, everything I need during this season.
For that, and so much more, I’m grateful.
