Ma's Corner 3/14/06: Way to go!

There is enough reason to celebrate today. My son is 4 months old and I also celebrate my fifth year of service with the telecoms company I'm currently working for. Apart from the cash reward, I am lucky to have a regular job compared to millions of jobless Filipinos.

But not so long ago, after giving birth, I considered resigning just to be a full-time mother. But we couldn't afford to give up my job, literally. The monthly salary and other benefits I am enjoying now help us to get by with our bills and expenses at home. The compensation I receive --although not much-- goes a long way in taking care of Matt's needs. But how I wish to just stay at home and take care of my growing son's other non-material needs.
