This is my first ever post for Sunday Scribbles. Welcome and please leave a link if you are participating so that I can visit.
I scratched my head this summer. My children are in school full time and I am still at home. I have volunteered at PTA, at Bible Studies, at church, at Girl Scouts. I've volunteered to serve my time at the concessions stands for several seasons of baseball and softball. My life has revolved around my family.
As well it should. I prayed for years to have children and thank God my husband and I have three. But I stood at the crossroads, wondering which way to go. On one hand, we could always use the extra income for things, but in this economy there would be no work available in the hours that I need. I have no back up, no relatives, no mother or father or in-laws to get the kids.
So, my undiscovered country is school. I would have loved to see the sandy stones at a Welsh castle but it will have to wait. I will pursue a degree, a mother among the dream-filled young.
My steps will be cautious in the new world. I wonder if I will be able to live and thrive there. I am afraid that I will not be able to keep up with the school work and worry that I will not be the role-model that I would like to be for my children.
A role model who does her homework diligently and does well.
Where in the world am I? At the beginning of a new adventure, a step off my door sill.
