So much more than worksheets and lesson plans/You are not Oppressed

Greetings
I want to welcome everyone who has graced my blog with your presense. After blogging on and off about our homeschooling journey throughout the years, I felt compelled to create this blog and share other aspects of my day to day life. After skimming through my random post from my homeschool blog Resourceful Homeschooling , I began to realize that  there is so much more to me and my family than just worksheets and lesson plans. There is so much more to me than just being a homeschooling mother. I've also noticed through comments made in various groups, among various people that imply being a homemaker is a form of oppression and leaves women very limited in the choices they  have in life and that is simply not true. I feel totally complete as a wife, mother and homemaker and feel that this role is vital to maintain a strong family unit in the nucleur home and within the community.  I've also had discussions with other SAHM who felt discouraged by comments made to them that reflect the same negative implication. From where I am sitting and while I observe the current state of our family units collectively, there is a lot of work to be done and the traditional homemaker needs to be revived. I am a woman who embraces her femininity and motherhood and have no desire to compete with any man. There is nothing more pleasing to me than to know when my husband comes home from a hard days work, he can come home to a clean house, settled children, dinner ready and a relaxing pair of clothes to slip into. If he so chooses he can  then rest his head in the arms of his queen and feel at peace. With that being stated, my wish is to uplift and encourage any and all women who may be feeling down and doubtful.  We have divinely called upon and blessed. Peace & Blessings

  1. Loving it! And definitely looking forward to more. I also love my role as a woman, wife, mother and homemaker and it is such a joy when you encounter others that still value these feminine traits and take pride in nurturing their families. ;)
