Let me begin by introducing myself. My name is Mieke and I have three jobs -- wife, mother, and preschool teacher. I decided to call the different aspects of my life "jobs" because of a bumper sticker I once saw. It said, "Every Mother is a Working Mother." That is by far one of the most insightful bumper stickers I have ever seen. It doesn't matter whether you work in the home, outside the home, or both -- being a Mother is work -- a work of love for sure, but still work!
All of my jobs are very rewarding, but in very different ways. As a wife I have had the opportunity to share my life with my best friend. As a mother I have had the opportunity to watch one of God's most precious gifts blossom from newborn baby to independent toddler. And, as a preschool teacher I have had the opportunity to see many children learn and grow more than I could ever have imagined.
My intention for this blog is to share some of my life with those who would care to know about it. I have found a lot of useful information on blogs and hope that over time I can do the same for others.
