When Janet fell in love and married, she became a full-time housewife, then a mother of three, and a very contented woman. But all her friends prodded her with the assumption that had she made a right choice and opted to be a career-woman she would have been financially well off, with much material property and wealth.
Janet smiled. She was happy with the way things were, and would not have asked for more. Her husband was a good man – she never felt for wanting more. Her children were growing up and they were well placed.
For Janet the right choice had been made, to flow with the stream, and to trust in God. Making the right choice in life could be attributed to character and personality; having the cutting edge, being bold, or adventurous; knowing when to weigh the pros and cons before taking the plunge.
Sometimes it could drive a person to being unethical. I remember Janet saying: “We did the best thing we could after looking at our advantages and thinking positively. It worked out”.
