When we became Wives and Mama's....

When we became Wives and Mama's we also became....cooks, bottle washers, nurses, taxi drivers, pharmacists, nutrition specialists, organization guru's, entertainers, artists, seamstresses, wardrobe planners, economists, teachers, advocates, lobbyists, maids, prayer warriors, laundry experts, fear calmers, house cleaners, diaper washers, menu planners, referees, listeners, rule enforcers, homework helpers, budget stretchers, clock watchers, counselors, tutors, librarians, researchers, scientists, motivators, linguists, spiritual advisors, cheerleaders, dream builders, encouragers, party planners, holiday organizers, Santas, E. Bunnies, Toothfairies and many, many more.

And then folks have the nerve to ask "stay at home Wives and Moms" what we do all day? I would say we've got enough to keep us busy for a long, long time.

Being a wife and Mom is a blessing and gift from God.

Titus 2:5 We are to be "self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to our husbands, so that no one will malign the work of God."

Proverbs 31:27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.

Welcome to the farm ~ we are a blended family with 7 children (3 are married), 4 grandsons, 5 dogs, 3 rabbits, and 15 chickens living on 3 acres in Georgia. I love crafting, sewing, cooking & canning, recipes of all kinds, reading, playing with my little buddies, family time, travel, pinterest and most of all the Lord.
