Mindful Monday!!!

Mindful Monday ” is something new on the The Mommy Diaries!
I will be taking the time on Mondays to share w/you some of my “awareness” moments…
Please be aware that these moments will be good, bad and maybe even ugly…but they will be honest, heartfelt, hopefully relateable.
By the end of the post, I hope that you see the light that I did and it encourages you to keep pressing, improving and growing closer to God in every area of your life!!!

Mindful Monday
Can I be honest w/you? I haven’t always appreciated being a stay-at-home wife/mother. 
I haven’t always taken the time to “smell the roses” and appreciate the season that God had me in.
All I could think about is what financial position we could be in if we were still a two income household and how I could do more, buy more and pay more bills.
I didn’t take the time thank God for allowing me to be a wife/mother whose full-time job was creating a home for my family, while at home.
Now I’m appreciative! I appreciate being able to be the “Home Manager”! I’m thankful that I can volunteer at a local pregnancy center 2x’s monthly. I’m appreciative that I can be active at my daughters school w/o reservation, I’m thankful that I can support my hubby in his coaching career.
I’m not sure that I would be able to do what I do now, or even desire too, if I was still working full-time in corrections.
I’m grateful that I can look at my life and tell God that I’m grateful for my “home” season…and not feel insecure or that I’m missing out on something b/c my life isn’t where I thought it would be (my aspiration was to be a prison warden:o)).
I now know w/o a doubt that I’m in the right place at the right time.
I encourage you to be grateful in your “now”season…there’s always a lesson to learn, not only for yourself but also to bless someone else:o). So grow in your faith and be perfected…in this season!
