Goddess of Fundom

I was thinking about one of my friends who works and has children. She's told me how hard it is juggling time to be there, time to work and time to get all the things of life completed.

I started thinking about how grateful I am that for now, during this present time, my husband's job allows me the freedom to stay at home and be with my girls.

It's something I'm so accustomed to that I almost take it for granted some days. I shouldn't take it for granted. I've never been one to enjoy a regimented day, and because I don't work outside the home I have the freedom to create my days with my girls. We can schedule a busy week splashing around at the gym pool, running around a park, enjoying a delish tea party, or on whim spend the day in our pajamas drawing, reading and imagining.

I just feel so free. I have my husband to thank for this, and the blessings of Heaven that he has this job. I know it's not easy in this current time. So for me I almost feel a bit spoiled. Frankly, I am grateful to be a bit spoiled.

I am so grateful to be a woman. I am so grateful to be a wife. I am so grateful to be a mother. I am so grateful that I have the freedom to create nourishing meals, tasty desserts and to share that pleasure with my family. I am so grateful that I can use my strengths to organize play groups, book groups and put together fun parties and events. I am so grateful that I can teach my daughters, and learn right along with them. I am so grateful that I'm just as curious as a 2 and 4 year old. I am so grateful that my husband loves when I want to take classes, try new things and experience amazing events and places. I am so grateful that he is a team player and that he is one of the most supportive and patient men I know.

I don't know about you - but being a goddess of hearth and home is extremely liberating. I get to be here for all the fleeting, precious moments. I get to try and capture those moments for my family. Yeah, I'm spoiled... and I live in a kingdom of fun and freedom - FUNDOM baby. LOVE IT.

How do you always seem to know what I'm thinking?

Now if I could just find some good berries...

Maybe we're twins separated at birth?
