Thankful Thursday-Sept 23

Good Morning ladies, it’s another Thursday to share what we are thankful for, today I’m thankful for the opportunity to stay home.  I wemo_flowers1_thankfulThursdayas a stay at home mom while my kids were growing up and I loved every minute of it.  However, when I was going through my separation and divorce I had to go to work.  I loathed it!  I accepted it as the way it was but I hated it so.  I missed being home and making my home our family’s oasis away from the outside world.  There is something so wonderful about being able to create a home that your family loves to be and looks forward to coming home too. For the last year, I have had the opportunity to stay at home again, and I am loving every minute of it again and everyday I give thanks to God for that opportunity.

So what are you thankful for today? If you would like to read what others are thankful for or join in the fun,stop by @Grace Alone.

Romans 5:3-4“Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.”

What a sweet blessing it is to stay at home with our families! That's where my heart is - and that's where I want to be. I'm so glad you had your heart's desire returned to you this year!

Hi Cindy, it is so very nice to meet you. I'm Yoli from Apron Senorita, a single-mother of 2 teen kids. I wish I knew how it felt to stay home to raise my kids. I always felt so guilty for not being home when they arrived from school. I know that God takes us down different paths to build our faith, courage, and love for him. I can't say that my life would have been better, but I do know that Jesus Christ is the man of my house.

I wish a blessed autumn season for you.

Yoli :)

It is truly a blessing to stay home and care for your family. Being a stay at home wife and mom is all I ever wanted to do. But God allows life to take us down different paths, sometimes. My path led through a season of my husband's illness and I had to become the breadwinner. It's turning out all good, but I do miss being home. Be thankful for your time home and use the time wisely! I enjoyed your post today.

You just inspire me. I think I need to write about just this very thing. Making a home a place of safety and rest for our family.

Outstanding post. Thank you.

I have been a stay at home mom for over 20 years now, ever since I had my first child. It is something I have always been thankful for.

Hope you're having a lovely day,

Staying home really is a blessing...even if I do go a little stir-crazy now and then. :-)

How fun to return to memories of my own through your heart so sweet. I was a stay home mom and with my divorce I went this same route. But isn't it amazing how God's Love remains so strong in all our travels... whether a working women, stay home women, single, married... in all situations...He is there. I stay Amazed..!

Hi Cindy;

Wish I would have known about Thankful Thursday before. I just joined Kims's new Thursday's Top Ten meme.

I'm thankful for all the wonderful online friends I've come to know these past years.

Have a blessed day ahead my friend. Hugs
