Precious Moments Are Priceless
Precious Moments Are Priceless
10/18/2019

I got to use my toe muscles the other day for something other than walking or standing - I used them to tickle my four-year-old daughter as she laid at the foot of my bed, pretending to hide under the covers from "Mommy's monster tickle toes!"  Each tickle filled the house with her laughter and shouts as we spent however much time SHE wanted to finish our game. 

That morning and every morning reminds me of how grateful and pleased I am to be a stay-at-home mom.  I have a friend who is also a mother to a four-year-old daughter, but my friend is more interested in racing to earn the hundred thousand dollar salary mark by working a full time job and spending any free time she has outside her job on a side business.  She sends her daughter to daycare during the week and leaves her with neighbors during the weekends and when she goes on vacations alone with her husband.  I once had a similar opportunity to have a big job, but I declined.  No amount of money, fame or social recognition could ever replace the precious time I get to spend every day with my children.  I have to go now - my toe is being summoned for another game of tickle!

Remember that you can either read "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands," or you can take my video course based on the book.  To find out more about the course, go to marriage one oh one dot com.
