Motherhood is an adventure, a journey and a divine calling. Stay-at-home mothers create an environment where bonding takes place and children learn to attach to relationships.
A single question that is frequently asked for most stay-at-home mothers is “what do you do all day? This kind of question isn’t always appreciated and it’s annoying. It also discriminatory that such moms are not contributing much just because they are not employed full time in the office or anywhere.
But, if you think about it deeply, stay-at-home mothers are doing their tough jobs full time — caring for her precious children, bathing, dressing, feeding and comforting them.
Working at home is still work, there’s just not someone else telling you what to do and when to do it.
A tattoo artist named Ryshell Castleberry who is based in Florida got sick of the above-mentioned question. Perhaps being frustrated by it all, the woman took time to write a lengthy tribute for all stay-at-home mothers and then shared it on her Facebook wall.
Ryshell made a fictional conversation between a psychologist and a husband where the latter says that his better half “doesn’t work” because she is a “housewife.”
Ryshell’s post immediately went viral on social media. It gained numerous likes and shares on Facebook. Many were able to relate with with her post, taking time to leave positive comments as well.
There are few who also reacted negatively to the post, some of whom are working mothers who said they “do all that AND work.”
But the woman defended herself saying that her post could be for everyone, whether working mom or working that. They should read the message and replace the words with words that fit their situation.
Here’s the Facebook post of Ryshell:
