When she says something like, “I’m glad you don’t work. It’s so sad when kids can’t be with their moms.” I do not say, “Yeah, why would moms even do that?!” I do say, “You know honey, I am glad God has provided a way for me to stay home with you guys but you need to be careful how you think about that. Moms that work love their kids just as much as I love you. I am not a holier person because I stay home. It’s just what God has called me to do. I’m not holier than them.”
"Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control"…that’s what I see listed and that's what I want to see in my kids.
