I hope I don’t screw these kids up too horribly.
I am by definition a housewife.
This word has changed in meaning over the years. Though it may have once been a very normal and common and even respectable thing for a women to become once married, in the last 50 or so years it has gone through waves of positive and negative connotations. I personally find it to be coming back to a state of positive or at least acceptable reputation as a title.
I call myself:
Entrepreneur (loosely interpreted)
Among other titles. But simply I am a housewife. I’m not sure yet how I feel about it, though it has been six years since I began this job. I never dreamed this is where I would be when I was younger, though it seems providence would have never let me do anything else during this season of my life. I do not say that lightly, because I have fought it over the years and keep coming back to a question of why I am here. Why did God put me in this position?
I am a first generation Housewife. I have no role models or examples to which I have gleaned know-how from. I have had to search for answers, read books and ask those who I viewed may have done it well and become wise and experienced.
So here I am, a mother of two unique children and wife to a good man learning as I go.
My goals in life have not changed but definitely been added too as I’ve become a mother, and a housewife. This is not where I saw myself, but I’m learning to appreciate the season and experience I am acquiring.
