I met Pamela Lynne Murray online this week. She is a stay-at-home mom who has, at times, worked out of the home to help keep her family afloat. Welcome, Pamela. We look forward to hearing more. (Check out my Guest Blogger Guidelines.)
I have been on this quest for about 10 years: to find the perfect job and a bigger house. Can any of you relate? I check books out of the library about career personality matches, finding out how to find the work I love, etc. So far all roads led me right back to where I am now: communications, specifically writing, although I love to present as well.
I drive my family crazy, always quizzing them. Would you rather do this or that? Would you rather be inside or outside? Would you rather talk or listen? Not only am I on my own quest, I am my own family’s job coach. My son will go along and answer all of my questions. My daughter just ignores me. And my husband is tired of me telling him he needs to find a job researching for people because he does it all day long and loves it. But must say I have never really thought about being a career specialist. I just love the quizzes and coming up with the answers. They do so fascinate me.
The other quest is for a third bedroom. Honestly, how hard is it to find a house that is equipped with the standard rooms, plus a third bedroom? It’s not like it’s a bedroom with a pool in it or a seventh bedroom, just one more. If I didn’t know better I would think that God may just want us to stay here at least a little while longer. Personally, I think 24 years in a two-bedroom is long enough. That is a
whole different story.
So, there you know a little bit about me. Oh, the reason we need a third bedroom is that we never thought the Lord would bless us with two children. My husband at 57 and in a wheelchair
and is not even supposed to be alive and we should have never met or married, let alone beeen blessed with a girl and a boy. Now, if we could only turn back time and repurchase a trailer with three bedrooms.
My advice to anyone starting out. Always buy a three-bedroom home. Even if you don’t plan on staying there, you never know what the future has in store. His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways. Believe it or not they are higher than ours. So, he must have a skyscraper of an idea.
