Domestic Bless

Nope, the title of this entry does not contain a typo. It really is "bless" (as opposed to bliss), as the past one month has really been a source of unbelievable blessings for me.

It has been a month since I quit my former job as I decided to take a break from the corporate world. I thought I would get bored (well, I did on my first day out of the office) but time has flown so fast that it is only now that I realize that being a work-at-home mom can really be enjoyable.

The kids are happier and more relaxed. My daughter says I should just stay home "forever." There are no more "highly stressful" homework review sessions with my eldest. I do not feel as tired (still a bit tired -- it comes with the territory called motherhood) and at the height of Milenyo, the typhoon, I didn't have to worry anymore regarding whether I should go to work or not. I don't dread Mondays too.

The last month too, has likewise been quite enlightening when it came to "planning my life out." When we work, sometimes we get too busy that we hardly have time to think about what we actually want to do and how we should handle things that come our way. It is quite liberating to actually be able to sit and ponder how I should move forward.

I think there is wisdom in universities which usually give their faculty a sabbatical (of one year) for every seven years that they teach. Everyone needs a break. To think. To recharge. To reflect. Most importantly, to pray.

The past month was better than I thought it would turn out. It was surprising that even with less money in my pocket, I felt infinitely richer. God truly provides us with everything we need.
