At the end of the day: For Stay-home Moms
September 1, 2008 4:59pm CST
Have you experienced crying yourself to sleep at night due to exhausting yourself too much? giving too much, serving too much, to the point of forgetting to take care of yourself? I love my small boys so much that i want to give them the best, nurture them to the best that i can, and protect them from harm in any way i can. Doing this everyday, i eventually develop migraine, back pains, pain in my left knee, and other joint pains, including tendinitis. This is stress, i know. But at the end of the day, despite all the pains in my body, i tell myself that i am leaving my boys a lasting legacy of love and of service. I get comforted at the thought that they are healthy and happy, and most of all, they know and feel that their Mama loves them so much. And i believe when they grow up, they will know how to love well. My day ends at 12 midnight. That is practically ending a day on another day. I just hope and pray i will be healthy enough to enjoy watching my boys grow into fine young men.

I used to cry at night after all the days work at home when I was still living with my kids and ex-husband and that was the time when we don't have a nanny yet and house helpers.It was really hard.That's why I salute all the moms out there who are a full time mom because their job at work is really tiring.

I really don't think people know how much mothers and stay at home mothers really go through. People should really walk a mile in our shoes and see how tough it is. You are tired and achy at the end of the day, and sometimes at the beginning. It can be stressful trying to take care of everyone and everything so everyone else's lives are perfect. Many times you can completely forget about yourself. I'm sure your family is thankful for you, even if they don't know exactly how much you do. More people should really take notice of what we do everyday without hesitation or complaints.
