After six weeks of maternity leave, I’m entering back into work.
I’ll be working part-time, which is so exciting to me. I love my job, and my role as a mother, and feel so grateful for the ability to do both.
Twenty hours a week will be devoted to work, much of which can be done at home. The rest of my time will be spent with my son. Thank goodness, because boy, a six-week-old infant takes up a massive amount of time and attention. Hopefully I’ll begin to figure out this new blend of career and family.
In the current economy and work world, I know that even having a job is something that should not be taken for granted. Multiple friends and acquaintances have lost their jobs. I know people who are struggling financially, and doing everything they can to stay afloat. Cutbacks and layoffs have become daily occurrences in the news.
Therefore, I am glad to have a job. I am glad to be doing something that I am passionate about. I am glad that my husband and I are able to provide for our family.
