Mom, I'm So Glad You Worked From Home
by Judith Cassis
Many of us believe we have no choice but to work full time jobs for someone else. True for a few, but many of us do have a choice. Hold on - don't let that statement ruffle your feathers. I didn’t say it would be easy, but whether for ourselves or someone else, working from home is doable. It’s a commitment we CAN make, even an inch at a time, when we step into our passion and make the right choices. We may have to give up a few things or put them off until later in life, but please take it from one who now looks back in gratitude for the choices I made when my children were young; I trust you'll see it will have been worthwhile. All of it!
Recently, my 19 year old son came up and gave me a hug and said, “Mom, I’m so glad you worked from home when I was young.”
Wow. I didn’t think he would have the maturity to reflect on that until he had his own kids, if ever.
After I got over my shock, I asked him what he meant. He told me a few things I’ll never forget; things that warmed my heart. He said he was grateful our family was so close and that he felt comfortable talking to my husband and me about his life. I credit this in a big way to the time we all spent together running our family business from home.
