The Joys of Motherhood

I ran across this photo on facebook and it just blew me away, because normally when referring to a stay-at-home mom, it’s all about how much work it is, and how underpaid and underappreciated SAHMs are, which is true. But this touched my heart. It is so very true. I wouldn’t give up being a SAHM for anything. Yes, it’s grueling, stressful, there are no vacations, no sick leave, and nobody seems to see exactly what a mother does. When kids are at daycare all day, there is no one to mess up the house, no dishes that get dirty, and the house just stays the same. But when children are at home, they are constantly “making memories” with lots of things, which reminds me of another photo I saw that I really liked:

So I am blessed beyond blessed when I get to stay home with my children and receive all their love and kisses and hugs. I don’t miss a thing.
