We are not a mushy family, and BOb and I don't proclaim our love on Facebook. In fact we hardly ever say anything to each other on there at all. So it was a wonderful surprise this morning to wake us and discover what he had written on his page.

I hate saying that my wife "just stays home". The truth is that she's a hard worker and has a college degree, so she could easily do my part: work 40 hours a week and bring home a paycheck. Any mature adult can do that. I, however, could never do what she does: be responsible for raising our children 24/7 (sure, I help her out as much as I can nights and weekends, but she's never really off the hook).

And it was equally wonderful to go back later in the day and see all the other people who had commented on his post as well. Motherhood is a job with long hours as is being the homemaker. Both have their rewards but are a mostly thankless job so it is a reward to receive any acknowledgment.

I am blessed to have a husband who understands the value of me staying home and can appreciate what I do for the family as a whole. For that I am grateful.
