A letter to YOU!

July 30, 2014

Before we got married, my husband and I agreed that (if possible) when we have children, I would be at home with them. Though I work from home now, I am still available when my child needs me. Now, this choice may not be for everyone or even be possible for everyone and what is right for my family may not be right for yours but that is what we decided and thus far we have stuck to it.

It has not been easy, at times. When my daughter was still very young my husband was retrenched. It was a very difficult time for us but through it all we were blessed and learnt that sometimes you just have to let go and trust which is not easy! My husband is not one to sit still and by the following year was employed, which is also a great blessing since the industry in which he is in people were still being retrenched.

Many of the choices we have made as a family are different from those around us. Sometimes, these choices may appear to make life a little harder for us but the benefits we have seen from following our “gut” or our “impressions” have been worth the sacrifice and I know that we have been so blessed.

So, now I wish to talk to YOU! If you are going through a hard time, if you feel like it is not only raining but pouring in your life. If you feel frustrated, tired, alone and demotivated even though you have followed that “little voice in your head” or followed your “gut” and you are wondering now if you made the right decision – let me tell you that YES, you did. Let go for a moment and let things fall into place. Trust! Everything will be okay! I promise. They might break a little before things are fixed but they will be fixed better than you had imagined. You are not alone. You will be okay.

Much Love x

  1. I have been at home with my little one since birth and now that she turns 5 next year. Hubby wants me to go to work but i am concerned that if she does get sick at school who will take care of her at home 🙁 and for the holidays she must still attend school :(. I am so hoping i find something to work from home too 🙂 ( so attached to her it breaks my heart to leave her)

  2. I feel you Sophia! Stay tuned though. I am hoping to highlight a few legitimate “work-from-home” opportunities for moms and dads over the next few weeks ♥

  3. Love this article, when i had my daughter now 16 months we also decided i be at home with her its really tough sometimes financially but some how we manage, and now the last 3 months ive been doing a few hours at my old work and am lucky to be able to take my daughter with tho its getting harder working with her as she doesn’t want to sit still 🙂

  4. Thanks for your comment Stephanie! I SO can relate! Just know, from one mama to another, that your daughter has been blessed through your sacrifice x
