Do you really feel appreciated for your work as a homemaker and do you feel that you receive the gratitude you deserve? I think that homemakers a lot of the time are the real unsung heroes that do a lot of work and deserve more respect!

I may not be very "domestic" but I do try to keep things decent around the house when I don't have one of the kids needing something or glued to my hip. The sad thing is one assumes when they take on this role they'll have all sorts of time to themselves and they don't. And no appreiciation for following around 3 kids all day feeding them cleaning them, picking up, laundry ect.... hence mom goes on strike when dad's home his turn & I go to work for a few hrs for a breather of these 4 lovely walls I call home ;0)

Hi bamakelly! I was a businesswoman before I got married and when I did, I became a housewife, a homemaker. I do love my new work and I do admit that I don't feel so much appreciated before. However, I realized that it is not because my husband does not love or appreciated what I do but because I was not really adjusted at that time to my new role. I missed the hectic schedules and the business life I used to have. I missed being the boss and being independent. After a while, I learn to love the peace, the love and the harmony within our home. I love the way I made our home to a beautiful place where we can relax and feel loved. And when i finally appreciated myself and my new role, I recognized and felt how much my husband appreciated me and the sacrifices I made. take care and have a great day!
