29 Gifts, Day Fifteen: Working Momma Support!

May 15th, 2011

My gift for today was a long, supportive message that I sent to a friend who is returning to work soon after the birth of her second child.  She had sent me a note, saying she needed a “you can do this” email to help her prepare for the transition. 

I was happy to oblige.  I know how hard it is to juggle work and family life. And it is hard.  I love my job and I truly believe my work is meaningful and important. I also love my daycare and see my children thriving there.  But there are absolutely days where it takes all of my willpower to walk out the door and leave them in the care of strangers.

So I sent her a small novel of support, love, and practical tips.  Hopefully they’ll help!
