Yes I Love

I have been home full-time now for about 6 weeks.

I love how Patrice now follows me around and looks for me (instead of daddy).

I love being here for her speech therapy.

I love being able to take her to the gross motor skills play group last week.

I am even growing to like picking up the older girls at school.

I love that I could be home with Sue last week when she was sick.

But it’s not all roses and sunshine.

The transition from working full-time has been hard.  I miss having something to talk about when my husband comes home.  He doesn’t exactly want to hear about how I washed diapers today or what is happening on facebook and twitter.

The worrying about finances is excruciating.  Though we are so thankful for our Church and friends who have helped.  I worry every day about what we will do when the holidays are over and people forget our needs.

I hate that I have to find a new psych doctor.  Like cry every time I think about it hate it.  But you better believe I am so thankful we have medical insurance.

Life is a mixed bag right now.  It’s hard.  And things are slipping a little bit for me.  But I am not alone.  I have my wonderful hubby and three girls.  I have friends, I have my church and I have my faith.

Survive til you Thrive!

  1. Huge hugs Charity. This is a huge transition. I love that you celebrate all the wonderful parts of staying at home that you love while talking about all the tough obstacles. Keeping you and your family in my prayers. Praying that you find a wonderful new psych doctor.

  2. I am so glad you can find the parts of staying home that are rewarding. I think you will find more once you have the psych doctor issue sorted out and become comfortable with someone new.
    I can’t believe it has been six weeks already! Overall, I think you have handled this transition as well as anyone could. Keep trusting God to lead you all through this. He has made sure your needs have been provided for so far. Don’t expect that to change just because the holidays are over. Keep trusting. It is hard. (I freak out about money all the time and we are both working. AND we have to change insurance this year. Not doctors, but it will change a lot of other things coverage-wise. Which COMPLETELY freaks out Daniel.) I, too, want to be able to see the end of next year and know that financially and physically we were able to make it through the year with minimal bumps and bruises along the way. That we didn’t go hungry or be cold and in the dark with no electricity. But we can’t. We have to hold our Father’s hand and trust.
    Still praying….
