The other night I was a counselor at church. I greeted some new people who happened to work at the same software company as Juergen. I told one of the women, who was very polished and beautiful that Juergen worked there too. The other women in their group asked me what department I worked in, she seemed kind of surprised when I a said I was a stay at home mom. In fact she could not control her loud”OH”! I felt little. It took allot of strength to keep calm and keep asking them questions. I was there to help give them direction...and I did. I am glad to be just a mommy! It is the biggest and most important job there is. My kids are not easy...in fact they are very challenging, but I am so grateful I got this job. The benefits (hugs, kisses, and even an occasional thank you) are pretty good! Sometimes I feel like the velveteen rabbit. When you are really loved your fur is loved off and gets pretty worn out, but you could never be ugly except to people who do not understand!
