How Much Is Your Time Worth?
                                                                     Jedidiah & Myself

Wow! Since giving birth to my son, my time is much, much more precious to me. I get things done in the seconds, minutes, and occasionally the few heavenly hours that arrive in my life like diamond treasures. The things I used to do on my own time, time that I took for granted, I will never possibly be able to do again, at least for a long, long time. I have to analyze every decision I make as to how to get a task done, "how" being operative. Even as I sit here and write I am carefully measuring my words as I don't know how long before my son is going to wake from his slumber.
Money is tight for everyone these days but I fantasize about getting my hair professionally blown out once a week, heck I fantasize about taking a shower once a week! I love to garden and water my flowers and am now considering hiring a lawn service because I don't know when I would be able to water them in this soon to arrive hot summer. Things I would have done myself and enjoy doing now need to be delegated to others. If I can afford to pay someone else to do it, as a mother, it really makes sense to do so because time is precious!
A good example of that was April 15th when my son, Jedidiah, was dedicated to the Lord at the Sanctuary Church, in Savannah, GA. We had a wonderful reception that followed. It was wonderful because I had hired Joes' Homemade Catering, in Savannah to do all the work. We had seventeen guests over and let me tell you, to come in after church and host a party where I did not have to prepare one meal, serve one drink, and worry about plates, napkins, & silverware, etc nor do dirty dishes was worth every penny! Joe's Homemade did a wonderful job and made me look like the Hostess with the Mostess. I would never have been able to pull that off on my own. It made my son's reception party extra special.
It brought home the simple fact that paying someone to do a job that frees up your time is worth the money. Whether it be hiring a catering service, lawn service, dog walking service, or like my business, a maid service - being able to free up one's time is priceless.
