Appreciate a Working Mom

Working Moms

I glimpsed the life of a working mom for a week. It’s tough, y’all.

Away all day. Home in time to cook, then on to the chores that didn’t get completed that day. Or not. Only to have to walk around piles and ignore clutter. Falling asleep on the couch, only to have to wake up early… and it starts again.

I only had to do it for a week. And now I want to give a shout out to all the working moms –

You guys rock. 

I have a whole new appreciation.

Encouragement for the working mom

She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
“Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.

Proverbs 31:24-31

About Kimberly Vogel

I am a mom of four beautiful daughters, a writer, and a certified Early Childhood and Elementary Teacher who recently made the switch from teaching in a classroom to teaching her children at home. I am often found in the children’s area of my church where I volunteer and lead a children’s program. Writing is a natural outpouring of my love for my Savior. Follow along while I share my journey as a bridge builder with you. My prayer is that you start building bridges too!

  1. And on top of all that a lot of them have to deal with feeling guilty or judged by those of us who are blessed enough to be home with our kids most of the time. Hugs to all the working moms!
