"Get Real" Monday

I didn't feel worthy until I started making money. 

For years I have made sure there was always something healthy in the house to eat, that homework was done and there were clean socks and underwear for school the next day.  I made sure necessary repairs to the house and car were made and spent hours/days at school helping where I was needed.  I have raised babies to young ladies, and yet...

I didn't feel worthy until I started making money.

I am surrounded by mothers who not only raise their children (no Nannies, etc.) but also work outside the home.  For years I attended dinners with my husband only to be asked that dreaded question, "So what do you do?" only to see indifference to my response of 'I'm lucky that I get to stay home with my children.'  Conversation stopper, right there.  Always. Every time. 

Now my issue is that my girls are both about middle school age and I have time to create an income.  And I'm doing that, little bit by little bit.  And now that I can contribute financially to the household I finally feel worthy. 

Isn't that pathetic?
