Simple Life, but Happy

Hello Dr. Laura,

I am my kid's mom and my husband of 25 years girlfriend. In my twenties, I got married and had two beautiful boys. Every day I would drop them off at daycare and go to my cushy county job. I started listening to you at work and took to heart everything you said.

One night, I went home, looked at my husband and said, "I want to be a stay at home mom." He looked back at me and said, "ok." I did not think he would agree so easily.

Looking back at how much I would be earning now, how big my 401k would be, or how close I would now be to retiring all means nothing. We live a simple life, but we are happy. I would NEVER say I regret my decision to stay home. My boys are 21 and 23 now and doing wonderful. They are wonderful. I am so grateful to your voice coming out of my little radio at work and changing my life and the lives of my husband and children.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,
