It has been just over a month that I lost my job. It has been just over a month that I gained a new appreciation for stay-at-home moms.
Losing a job is a bad thing. In my case there is a positive side to this bad situation. Since I was granted two months of severance pay I have been able to enjoy a couple of days a week staying at home and taking care of four month old Taylor. It has been such a blessing to have this extra time to bond that I otherwise would not have had. Christina and I both feel that God perfectly timed this “bad situation” so that I would be able to spend quality time with our new bundle of joy.
While there are the stresses and demands of taking care of a baby, cleaning and cooking; the joy that comes from my time at home with Taylor greatly overshadows those stresses.
Now, as I look for a job, I can’t help but feel sad that I will soon have to return to work. But as the saying goes, “All good things must come to an end.”
