I have been reading this book "A Joyful Mother of Children" by Linda J Eyre. I think she knows her stuff. She is the mother of 9 children. Her and her husband are a great team together.
As I was reading this book, I came across a quote from CS Lewis. I love C.S. Lewis. I have read several of his books and they always make me stop and think. This is what she quoted:
I LOVE THIS QUOTE!
I equate homemaking with motherhood.
I admit being a mother is not always something I wanted to do, but once I held those precious babies my heart swelled with love and joy and I knew that was my calling in life, but sometime I don't enjoy it, but I know how important it is.
I have been greatly struggling with my responsibility as a wife and mother and also as an individual. I am trying to find balance and true joy.
If there are any suggestions of what you do, please feel free to share them. I am open to new ideas.
I want to be a "Mother Who Knows".
