PM Day 24 of 40 Days with Job
The Yaya Chronicles.
Everyone (in the Philippines, at least) undergoes this. Looking for the perfect, or nearing perfect, yaya. Someone we can trust with our children and our home. And now, with 3 children, our search is getting more furious.
We have had 4 yayas. One of them has been with us from the start, and until now, is still with us. She has learned how to cook; and how to take care of kids (she was originally a labandera). And we have had 3 others that didn’t last too long. One who didn’t feed the kids when we were out. Another who got pregnant. And another who didn’t seem to understand what was going on.
So we are looking for one. Someone who is good, trustworthy and unafraid to learn. Just like all of us. Good, trustworthy and unafraid to learn. We also need to work hard. And we also need to be able to obey our Master in Heaven. We cannot just sit around and not understand what we are supposed to do. We are supposed to do our work, do it well and even do more than what we are supposed to do.
What I am looking in a yaya for my children; is what I should be for my God. Can you refer anyone? 🙂
