I would echo the author of this post in her assessment of her life as a “stay-at-home-mom”:
God is sovereign and He sets in motion those things He knows are for our good. I believe He knew it was for my good and the good of my children that I be “just” a regular housewife. I am lucky to have the freedom to be here in this home, doing what I do. I hope I never take it for granted. There are just so many things I would never have been able to do if I’d been working full-time, and I would have missed so much of my children’s lives. Society tries to tell women we can have it all. Don’t believe it.
