I found an interesting article that might just encourage you!
Being a Stay-at-Home Mom is probably one of the most multifacited-job-tasks that we as Mom's would ever face. A harder task master than any outside job would require on us; little acknowledgements or benefits; long nights and early mornings. I probably would not stay in any job very long if my boss, or co-worker would scream or cry and whine every time they didn't like something, and would most certainly not stay if I wasn't even being paid!
Now, we are also HOME SCHOOL Stay-at-home Moms!!! Add on to that list above: a ton more responsibilities, endless hours of curriculum, reporting, one-on-one teaching, interventions, meet-ups, etc, etc. Sometimes some of us have to take on a little side job too just to help with finacnces. Here in Canada it is getting near impossible to live by being a one-income family.
So why do we do it?
Because we love God! He has ordained us to this wonderful task and He knows what He is doing, even when we don't. Because we want to live out His words when it says we should love our children and be maker's of the home. Because we know that God would not give us more than we could handle and that He is there for us to lean on when we can't handle it!
To the world, we might be worth some figures that are made up, but we know we aren't getting paid those numbers. That doesn't matter, because...
We are simply Priceless
Happy Learning :D
