The world typically views homemakers or their role as something insignificant. We love to praise women for their accomplishments and their career paths but look down on those who choose homemaking to be their career. Yes, I called it a career, because it is one. Based on salary.com a stay at home mom or homemaker should be making a typical salary of $178,201. Let’s be honest this job is a 24/7 job. All that we do, we do to help our husbands and raise children to be bright citizens of this world.
You see, Bio parents and foster/adoptive parents have a bad reputation with each other. Bio parents and foster parents (in terms of foster care) have this way of sometimes thinking ill about one another. I mean, in all honesty, even bio mom told me one time the word ‘foster mom’ “Left a bad taste in her mouth.” Let me tell you, I’ve heard horror story upon horror story countless times, and sometimes they’re true, but ours is not one of them.
We sometimes tend to think that if things go this way or the other, life will be better. But, not to be a Debbie Downer, it won’t. Things can only get better if we look to God and not man. When we put our faith in man, we will always be disappointed. When we put our hope in this world, we will never find peace or calmness until we find it in God.
I love listening to YouTube while I clean and do my daily task. And I love reading blogs during my downtime. I’ve come to find an amazing group of women that share my same roles, beliefs, and views on homemaking, motherhood, and marriage roles in general, and would love to share them with you today.
As a Homemaker, we tend to allow ourselves to fall into the pit of the never ending routines. We wake up, get ourselves and everyone else ready for the day. You make breakfast, wash the dishes, clean the house, tend to your children, make lunch, wash the dishes, clean up and so on. It starts to become so mundane, that we begin to lack interest and efficiency in our role as homemakers.
children but bio parents as well (if that be the case, sometimes it isn’t) . You’re to work side by side caseworkers and other people who represent your children as they confront some of the hardest moments in their young lives. You continuously fight for those who sometimes don’t have a voice for their own. And most importantly, you show love unconditionally to a child that is put in your life for that purpose in time.
