Staying at Home


By Nikki Willhite


" One hundred years from now it will not matter what kind of car you drove, what kind of house you lived in, how much you had in your bank account, or what your clothes looked like. But the world may be a little better because you were important in the life of a child"   Margaret Fishback Powers

I hope that many of you who are reading this webpage are able to stay at home and raise your children. I realize that sometimes mothers have no choice but to work in order to meet family necessities. My heart goes out to these women.

For those of your who have to work outside the home, take comfort in the fact that your children are a lot smarter than most people give them credit for. They know if you are working because you need self-gratification, a fancier home or car, or because of true financial necessity.

These are my opinions, and I hope that I don't offend anyone. Everyone's situation is different. There may be other reasons why a woman needs to work outside the home. Just remember- your children are "adults waiting to happen". They are your "best friends in progress". Enjoy them! Treasure every moment of their ever so short youth and childhood.

There is no sacrifice you can make of worldly goods that is worthy to be compared to the time you spend with your children. If you can possibly stay home, DO IT! You are blessing not only your own life, and the lives of your children, but possibly generations to come.
