Five Minute Friday: Grasp
On Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes. Unscripted. Unedited. Real. Check out mine below, and then see others at Five Minute Friday on Lisa Jo's site.
This week's topic is: Grasp
This week I had the opportunity to communicate with some of my friends from my "old" life. My life as a working woman. (Wow, that doesn't sound right...working woman...hee-hee..I meant, human resources consultant). One sent me a birthday card, one emailed me about an old business issue and one sent me a birthday email. It made me think of the old days and how much I enjoyed working with those people and how much I enjoyed working in human resources and as a legal secretary.
I am in an even better job now. I'm a stay at home mom! I am blessed to be in this position. I grasp that concept of how important it is to be here for my children every minute. I wonder, though, do my children grasp how important it is, what an impact it has on their lives, what it would be like if momma wasn't around 24-7, that momma used to be a great human resources consultant (if I do say so myself :)), what life would be like if I did still work outside the home?
I hope they do or will someday. I now understand and am thankful for my mom choosing the three us over working full-time.
I wonder if I really grasp the concept of what it would be like if I still worked as a human resource consultant. I can't really even imagine what it would be like to not be here 24-7.
Can you grasp what it would be like if your life was different?
