"It is 2013. Do something real with your life. It is embarrassing that women are still wasting their lives and education on menial unfulfilling child care tasks. No educated women should be doing this--save it for the hired help. I have no respect for women who leech off of their husbands." -Author Unknown
"Let's Please be Serious Grown-Ups: real feminists don't depend on men. Real Feminists earn a living, have money and means of their own." -Elizabeth Wurtzel
"Being a stay-at-home mom is easy. If I am tired I have a nap. If I am sick I baby myself. If I am bored I go for a walk. Even if I cleaned my house for 6 hours a day (which I don't) and exercised for 2 hours (which I don't) and spent 2 hours prep(p)ing food (which sometimes I do) I would STILL have more free time than I did before... about 35 hours per WEEK!" -SNUGGLY4U
To be clear, I am not saying that those who work are any less than a mother than I am. Nor am I saying that those who found that staying at home wasn't for them are terrible people. What I AM saying today, is that I am a Stay-at-Home Mom and I see you moms who might be buried by the negative words of others. I see you women who are often not dressed to perfection, earning a paycheck, or even receiving the appreciation that others do, but are working for the positive futures of your family. For all Mothers: by preparing those endless streams of dinners and insisting the family sit and chat and bond you are investing in the future mental health of your children. By encouraging participation in family bible study you are arming yourself with armor against the negative work of the world that will try to tear you down little by little.
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
Ephesians 5:33 - Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife [see] that she reverence [her] husband.
Which means that a husband should love his wife and a wife should respect her husband. If you ever wish to do a terrific study on this, read this book:
