Joining 5 minute Friday where we get to write for 5 minutes with no regrets. No really thinking it through only taking the time to write about a specific topic
So here goes 5 minutes of . . .
It wasn't a race I intended to join. But like it or not I joined the 'Rat Race' this year. After 28 years as a Stay at Home Mom and then another few years as a Stay Home Wife (after the kids were gone) I began helping my husband in fulltime ministry. And I was and am Blessed.
But this last year things have changed drastically and abruptly and I wasn't ready. I had to go to work full-time. Not in ministry but a real honest to goodness 'rat race' job. I have learned in a few short months it really is a 'rat race' out there.
It's a race I have been I feel forced to join before I was ready and not for the reasons I would have chosen.
It is a very different race than when before my children were born. I was young very, very young. Now I feel very old. At least I am wiser I can see things in the work force differently now and I can understand things now by looking at the whole picture which was something I didn't do as a 20 year old.
It's a race I have to force myself to join. It's a race that I have to pray I win. I have to ask God everyday to give me the strength I need to continue the race.
