When I lost my helper

I feel at a loss when our helper of several years bade us goodbye. For a long time, I trust the cleaning, laundry and taking care of the young kids to her. I still handle the budgeting and cooking stuff most of the time. I can leave the kids to her for a few days when I was assigned to cover an out-of-town event. Such was an easy arrangement for us until she decided to settle down. During that time, I was already thinking of resigning from work and her asking to leave was timely.

When the helper finally left, I thought I could handle everything with ease since the kids can do personal things on their own. I felt the burden of household chores after a few weeks. I thought I’ll never survive that episode. I was thankful and still am to a wonderful husband for coming to my rescue.

With my husband’s help, I was able to learn more here that I need to manage my time well, one task at a time, to accomplish something for a day.

Friends are there when you need them

My mother feels better now, but I’m still on my sentimental mode. Last night, I was able to talk to a friend. She made me feel a little better…I don’t want to go into much details, it’s enough that I share how I feel about this person. God really works in wondrous ways. He allows the right people, in the right place, at the right time for other people needing their help. Thank you, sis! 🙂
