A house full of love: I am lucky since becoming a mother I have always had a house full of love. Sometimes though it’s depressing because on occasion my house full of love lives without me. I travel to and from the various other houses full of love around the world while mine rocks on in my absence.
Understand I am not complaining I have a great life I am appreciated and adored. Everyone helps me to accomplish my goals and my goals are lofty: I want to reach out and make every house a house full of love. Maybe though I want to accomplish all that so I can feel justified when I choose to ignore others and stay home to drink the joy in mine.
I have often heard working fathers complain that they make all the money while their wives and children spend it and sometimes I want to yell DITTO! Not because others spend it but because they spend it in a way that allows them time together. And I want the time I see slipping away. Each time I get home travel worn and sleepy I smile as everyone laughs at my complaints and reminds me that I am self-employed. Today was one such day. A couple cups of coffee and several snuggles later I chose differently.
So if you want to book me for anything I’m pulling out the credit cards and hanging in fun locations with my own family. AKA unavailable all December.
