I am a very blessed woman...

From time to time it hits me just how blessed I am to have a husband that wants me to stay at home. This morning was one of those moments, I was curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee and my Bible, and it hit me afresh just how blessed I am! Yet, a lot of people look at being a homemaker as something grievous or "less than" being out in the corporate world.

One morning I was getting James ready for the day, and I realized that if I had a  job outside the home, I would be getting him ready to go to daycare, Taylor and I would be eating a very rushed breakfast, then we would go three different directions for the day- Taylor to his work, me to mine and James to daycare :( I could NEVER bring myself to drop him off with strangers for the WHOLE day...

And also, just realizing that a Mother's job is eternal, we are raising souls for Jesus, and Lord willing one day our children will put their trust in Him. And in what job out there do you get to go get a rosy cheek-delicious baby after a nap and love on him, and see his sweet smiles and hear those little giggles... And at what job do you get to hear a sweet little voice calling out "mama'??

"Thank you Lord for my wonderful husband that wants me to stay home with our baby, and keep the house, and thanks for blessing us with this PRECIOUS little man to raise for You." Amen.


  1. So true. It is such a wonderful blessing to be an at home mom and wife, so wonderful.

  2. Amen! Love being home with my babies and I'm so thankful that's what my husband wants for our family.

  3. SOOOOOOOOOOOO true and SUCH a thing to be thankful for! I also think of the fact that not only is my dh willing to let me be here at home he WANTS me here and would kill himself working before he ever had me leave the home.It would kill him to have me working. I take that SO forgranted sometimes! Imagine if your husband didn't value what you did at home? I can't imagine.......Thanks for the reminder! I just gave my dh a big hug just now and told him how much I appreciated him wanting me HERE and working so I COULD be here!
