Note to self: Don’t go shopping for Thanksgiving groceries the night before. The stores are busy and the shelves are empty!
The start of something new
I have procrastinated writing my first post. I’ve been putting pressure on myself to say something profound, to make sure that my first entry is perfect, before hitting the Publish button.
However, I’m not perfect. I’m just a Christian woman, a wife, seeking to please the Lord and my husband.
Six weeks ago, my employer called me into a conference room and told me that I was being laid off. I was relieved. It was an odd feeling, considering I’d been working there for four and a half years. That job was my entry into the “real world,” making me subject to real corporate drama, real annual reviews, and a real hard look at what matters.
However, I wasn’t happy working there. The job was good, the pay was good, but I never felt like I was making a difference. For a long time, I’ve wanted to be a wife, a homemaker, and eventually a mom.
Three and a half years ago, I met my husband. We had a brief courtship and married in October of 2005. Up until six weeks ago, I was working full time while trying to balance cooking, cleaning, and the growing desire to be at home. Being laid off was an answer to prayer. We prayed about it and my husband decided that I could stay home and be a full time homemaker.
This blog is about my thoughts and adventures in learning to be a homemaker, a better wife, and a Christian. I aspire to be a Proverbs 31 woman, looking well to the ways of my household. I have a lot to learn. With the Lord’s help, I can fulfill my calling to be a Proverbs 31 woman. Thanks for joining me in the journey.
