I don’t know why, but I was surprised to find in researching for my latest article in the National Catholic Register that stay-at-home mothers are quite a minority in our culture. Minority or not, I am thankful to God and to my husband for the opportunity to number myself among them. I’m now in my sixth month of professional stay-at-home motherhood and I can undoubtedly see the benefits it brings to my family…including and especially me! Here’s a link to the feature story, “Choosing Full-Time Motherhood.” The stories of other mothers (working mothers included) and the sacrifices they make for their children never cease to amaze and inspire me. As the Jewish proverb goes, “God could not be everywhere, so He made mothers.” Thank you, Jesus, for giving me this supreme and challenging mission to bring a little (and hopefully, as I grow in virtue, a lot of) godliness to my family every single day.
