Posted on June 25, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Everyone should count their blessings. Whether you are a full time housewife or a working mother , you should count your blessings and thanks God for those blessings.What you have and enjoy , others are not so fortunate and have not.

In this present world, being a full time housewife is a luxury only the rich can afford.

For the millions of ordinary women, they will have to work to put food on the table and to help their husbands to pay off those bills or send their kids to college.

One income is not enough to sustain a family unless you want to live in the rural areas or in the jungle and plant your own food and live a very simple and Spartan life.

There was a case of a Russian billionaire who gave up all his billions and went to live in the wild with his family.

The house had no electricity and no modern amenities. They felt more happy this way. His money brought him many problems.

People wanted to kill him or kidnap his wife and children because of his money.He had a large contingent of bodyguards and followed him where ever he goes. There was always danger to him and death lurks in every corner.

He got tired of this kind of life and gave up all his money and chose a simple life away from civilization.

Working mothers are thankful to others for making them able to hold a job.They are thankful to the baby sitters ,care minders or their parents,the teachers, neighbours and many others .

Every woman has the prerogative to choose their path. Whether they want to be a full time mother or a working mother. Each will have to make a sacrifice and trade off.

Working mothers should look at the positive side. There are so many things to be thankful about .

They get to have time alone .They get to have interactions with other adults. They earn a paycheck and have financial independence .They have an identity other than just a ‘mom.’

They set an example for their children to follow and the children can become more independent and self reliance.

Still has any regrets about being a working mom ? Time to move forward and don’t look back.
