Motherhood: Dream Job or Drudgery?

Earlier this week I shared a guest post with readers at the blog Keeper of the Home and I wanted to share it with you as well!

An excerpt:

“Nobody ever said motherhood would be easy, yet I’m probably not the only one who has found that some seasons challenge us beyond what we anticipated. Did we really know what we were signing up for? Are monotony and the mundane meant to be our lifelong companions?

Though we may not say so, sometimes we miss aspects of our life before motherhood. I remember weekend days when my husband and I would look at each other, after sleeping in, and ask, “What do you want to do today?”

I’d welcome a bit of that boredom now. Or even just a full night’s sleep.

Thankfully we can take practical steps to highlight what we love about motherhood and shed some of those burdens we carry.”
