Lets get something cleared up

Just to clear up some obvious confusion (and let me state how happy I am that I must approve comments before they show up on here)...I am NOT slamming Mom's who work outside of the home. There are times I don't understand why they do, but my blog post was about ME, no one else....no one in my life or in a general sense...it was simply about why I AM a STAY AT HOME MOM. IF you are feeling guilty for working, that's something you need to deal with yourself, do NOT go off on me that I'm out to make you look like a horrible mother. I wrote before I made my list of reasons that it was about ME. Ok, it was a self centered posting. If you are a working mom and have so much guilt, honestly my suggestion is to start praying about it and seeing if why you're working lines up with what GOD wants for your family. AND..if you want to be ugly in your comments, do it as yourself and don't hide behind a blocked profile...

I knew you were writing about you, Christy, in fact I think I mentioned that I was glad you/Chad realized how important it was for you to stay home and made the sacrifices necessary in order to do so. But I'm sorry someone took offense to it. It is a very sensitive subject to some, whether it is out of guilt because they are working or because they don't feel fulfilled if they are at home instead of out in the "corporate world" so I'm sure it could stir up a hornet nest with some commenters.

AMEN! Preach it, sister!!! You're exactly right - it's a load of guilt that causes someone to go off on you. You hit a nerve, even though you were NOT directing the post at anyone. That, dear people, is called CONVICTION...the Holy Spirit is working through that guilty feeling to let you know something's not right in your life.

I'm very surprised any working mom would take your post as a slam. I enjoy reading your blog and I am a working mom. Keep up the good work!
