I think the enemy is trying to get into my head. I'm taking a night class at the city college here, as well as a M/W afternoon class. They are both music classes. I'm not going for a degree or anything, I'm taking them because I've always wanted to go to college, and since music is what I'm interested in, I enrolled

I am praying! I can see why you are conflicted, but I think it is great that you are taking classes in what you are interested in. I hope that you can work everything out. I am a sahm too and I love to take classes off and on at our local college so that I can learn, grow and meet new people.

Its ok to get cold feet but its important to remember that you need some ME time for experiencing things you are interested in, not because you want a career but because it gives you enjoyment.

Let me start by saying that there is no such thing as "Just" a SAHM.

Thank you all so much for your words on encouragement. I tried to explain to DH how I was feeling, but he just got irritated with me and walked away.

Stacy, thank you for mentioning the Proverbs 31 woman. I've wanted to be that woman most of my adult life. You're right. She was many things.

I know in my heart that I'm not "just a mom". That's where I could tell it was the enemy putting thoughts in there. He can be a sneaky little devil (no pun intended LOL!).

I feel better today. Still overwhelmed at all I've taken on, but a little more confident in my ability to do it.

Keep in mind, I've been a mom since I was 15. I've never been anything else. Sometimes I don't even know how to be anything else. But, I have all of you here to help me, and of course I have my Jesus :) So, I'll be fine. ♥
