Hey everyone, I promise I will eventually get on a regular posting schedule!!! Its been so crazy! My husband and I moved two days ago and between Levi’s appointments and trying to unpack I have had no time to write. Thankfully now we are starting to settle in and getting things done.
I was thinking about how easy it can be to feel like Im not moving forward or doing anything with my life because at the moment, I am a stay at home mom/wife. However, looking back at how life was in the 20’s- 40’s I see how those women were viewed as having jobs at home. I realized I am moving forward and I am not useless or a lazy person, jobs do not define us.
I like to be busy, I like to get things done, it helps my anxiety to have a list of things to do each day. The thing is, moms are super heros, working moms and stay at home moms alike. A stay at home mom has the job of keeping the house clean, cooking the meals, taking care of the kids, and maintaining a relationship with her husband, and running errands. Working moms have the job of going to work, keeping the house clean, cooking meals, taking care of the kids, and maintaining a relationship with her husband.
God created women to be able to care for people and take care of their families in the emotional area and the home. It is a traditional idea, but its one that I hold to, one day I would like to go back to working but for now, financially its easier for me to be a stay at home mom until Levi is old enough to eat baby food. Now that we are coming up to Levi being one month, Im starting to be able to get back to doing things and feeling human again. I put on make up for the first time in a long time, I made breakfast and ran some errands. Hopefully after my doctors appointment I will be cleared to work out again.
I think that when we get into that places of feeling like we aren’t moving forward we have to remember, we are moving forward but just slowly and what we are doing matters tremendously. Without moms families wouldn’t be able to function fully.I know that without me, my husbands clothes wouldn’t be clean often and things wouldn’t be organized. Without me, my son wouldn’t be able to eat and my son would not exist. Whatever you do, when it is for others and for God, it matters! When you take care of your family, you’re fulfilling God’s design for the family unit.
I hope this helps you to remember that what you do matters and you are moving forward even if it doesn’t look like how everyone else is moving forward.
