In may of this year (2019), it will be 4 years since my Mom was given 6 months to live. She was diagnosed, and still has Stage 4 stomach cancer. Defeating the odds is something she is really good at! I was quite less willing to explore to far from her side as she was in the hospital for 29 days straight, minus a 16 hour failed attempt to go home.
It took me, an average housewife, mom of 2 beautiful teenagers, a long time to realize that Mom was going to keep defeating the odds. Every 3 months the scans come back showing no change. Every 3 weeks, she gets her chemo like clockwork.
About 2 years ago, I realized that I was becoming, as the Goldbergs sitcom calls it, a “Smother”... I was micromanaging everybody in my house hold. No one ate what I cooked anymore, the girls would need cars and of course the college fund could use some upping. I realized it was time for me to go back to work.
What kind of job would allow me to work around my kids school/bus/activities and yet be fulfilling enough. Would my family survive without me? Will Mom be OK if I am not as available?
The job I have now had has been such a blessing! It has taught me how to let go of things, trust my kids and hubs would learn to pick up my slack, and still have time for family. It is the best feeling to show my family that I can do this career thing with all my heart..and I love it when my loved ones ask…”how did you do today?”
