Encouraging those who want to be stay-at-home moms

My husband and I have very traditional roles in our marriage. He works outside of the home, and I stay at home with the kids. He never asked me to do these things. He is a loving respectful man, who wants me to be happy. I am blessed beyond measure to have him. 

I have always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom. I grew up with a working single mom, and I remember wishing she could be at home with me. It felt lonely without her, it was like something was missing. It was then that I knew I wanted to be at home with my children. 

When we had our first son, my husband and I sat down to make it work. At the time, my husband was making $10 an hour working at a call center while he finished up his undergrad. We lived humbly. We sold our second car to make sure we would have enough to pay for our needs, and lived in a one bedroom mold infested apartment. It wasn't easy. We didn't have nice things, we had to count every penny, and truthfully it was always a blessing at the end of the month if we had any extra money left. Yet, somehow, we always had enough for our needs. 

Being a mom is the greatest thing I will ever do. It is worth every sacrifice. There is nowhere else I would rather be then right here raising my children.
