Wow, Andrea, that's great! Taking off work BEFORE you have little people crowding your legs is a wonderful slap into the face of the guilt-monster.
The truth is that I have felt very guilty for not working full time now that Fiona and Timmy are in school full time. Eric gave me some good reasons, though. He said that, even if I'm not washing, polishing, cleaning, fixing anything around the house, but instead meeting with other people from within or without the Village, I am not just playing around. I am, in fact, the representative of the Williams-household. Without me doing that no one would know much about the Williams family. Besides, as Eric blogged with reference to Joel/Ryan's party and Cheryl's upcoming event, it is in just being present in the presence of others, that we communicating Christ in us. I realize that you do that at work as well. I guess the point is that you are simply shifting your field of influence.
At any rate, Andrea, I am truly proud of you and am cheering you on in your new endeaver!!!
