Today was our fortnightly church coffee group for mums... and we had a special male visitor.
No ladies, it wasn't George Clooney or Brad Pitt... it was my special husband (who to me is way cooler than any of those other guys).
I think he felt a tad out of place as well all chatted about the usual (pregnancy, birth, and other motherhood stuff). But then it was his turn to share (as that was why I had invited him).
And what he shared, I thought I would share with you all...
He thanked us all as mothers, on behalf of all men everywhere (haha) for the amazing and usually thankless job we do as carers of our families.
Among other things, he also spoke about the pillars of society... the important parts that make up a healthy society. He pointed out that "family" was one of those pillars... what we do is important - essential to a healthy society.
I have found over the years that when people used to ask me what I did, I would reply, "Oh, I'm just a mum". Society doesn't seem to esteem the role of parenting like it used to.
So whether you are a stay at home mum, a mum who works full time or part-time, you are important and valued. Your role is very important and needed.
You are valued.
Thanks honey for reminding us about the importance of our role.
(he has definitely earned himself some brownie points!)
