I am a mother of three and my primary job has been a homemaker for 18 years. My oldest headed off to college this year, my daughter to high school and my middle child is in a special needs High School. My son was born with disabilities that include emotional, cognitive and behavioral delays. Being a homemaker has increased my love of caring for others. I find solace in even the most mundane household tasks, especially organizing & cooking. I took the role as caregiver for my grandmother in her last year of life. I felt it was the least I could do to show how grateful I was for the time she gave me in h elping raise my sisters and I. My true passion is spending time with others, learning about their interests, how their day is or simply helping to resolve a conflict. My husband and I recently took in our niece to help her return to high school after she dropped out as a result of substance abuse. Caring for her, showing her compassion and the structure she yearned for is helping her navigate into a more confident adult life. I find that as my children have aged I am no longer needed to assist during the days and would like to spend that time caring for others. ... more
