I am thankful, so thankful, that the the father of our four precious children values them having a stay at home mother. I know that it would be easier financially for me to go to work everyday...for me, yes; but also, and perhaps especially, for Jake. However, neither or us wants that for our children and so I'm truly grateful that I am able to continue loving and raising them from home...not to say that a working mom does not love or raise her children. It's just that it has long been my dream to be a mother, and to spend each day loving and teaching them the best that I can, and I am so grateful that I don't have to leave that dream behind with the difficult circumstances. I know that this divorce is not easy for our children. But I also know it would be so much more difficult for them if, in the midst of this transition, I had to leave them at a daycare and go to work 40 hours a week. Jake is such a great daddy. He loves our children with all of his heart just like me, and they know that and feel that. He is their hero. Thankful.
