Need encouragement? Feeling like you’re holed up in an insignificant corner of the world you call home? I want you to know that your hard work as a wife and mother is the most important thing in your life. You are making a difference in the world in how you are blessing others, particularly your family.
What you do today will make a difference tomorrow. Not many working women can make such a claim. I say “working women” with my tongue in my cheek, for I know you have a pile of work waiting to be done. It’s overwhelming at times, I know, but you know what? That’s okay. Relax a little. Keep your little ones close. Read books to them, hold them and touch their sweet faces. Kiss those rosie cheeks and savor those moments. Today is the day to show them your love, so make the best of today!
Check in with your hubby during the day, if you can. Let him know you are thinking about him and that you love him. He is so important to you and he means so much. You gave him a kiss goodbye this morning, right? (Get back into that habit, Mrs. Mom.) Give him an extra big kiss when he comes home to make up for it.
I know, I know. You’ve got laundry to do. Well then, throw the load in and get back to your family. Yes, there are dishes, too, but don’t forget (and don’t feel guilty about it) to take some time to just be. Nearly every day I squeeze in a cat-nap in the afternoon, so if a mother of 16 can do it, so can you. Take a walk, talk with God, discuss with Him your frustrations and your joys. If you are close to Him, he’ll always reaffirm your commitment to your family.
Be blessed, Mrs. Mom, because you are.
