I just got hired for a receptionist’s position in a doctor’s office. Today was my first day and I was overwhelmed. I never worked a job like this in my life, it’s always been retail and for the last 5 years I’ve been working from home as a bookkeeper (and sometimes clerking) for the local Christian bookstore. I had no choice but to get another job. The thing is I am still working for the bookstore from home, am going to school (online classes so it’s more convienient but still grueling), and take care of my 4 kids.
Please keep me in prayer. I had a tough day, I survived but came home and cried about not being there for my little ones like before. My parents are gracious enough to care for them instead of putting them in daycare, so that is a true blessing, but it’s still hard for me.
How do moms do it, work outside the house and raise their kids? I’m at a loss! I have to log off now but will hopefully check back in the next couple of days for any responses to this post.
Please pray for my family and me. I am struggling over whether or not I made a good decision to go to work…I keep telling myself that it’s all good since my husband will be off this summer and we just went a whole month without a paycheck from him because of how the Easter break fell. We need the money to simply pay the bills, it’s not like I’m working just to have things. I am tired of being behind on bills all the time. I need to work to survive! But I miss my kids. I miss my home when I am gone all day. I think that we struggled through all these years, I can do it some more…so you see the conflict I have in my head.
Any words of wisdom will be appreciated.
