Appreciation for My Work-at-Home and Homeschooling Wife

Does the photo below look familiar? If it does, then you must have been one of the people in FB who viewed or even shared the FB post below it. My wife was one of those who shared this in her FB wall.

When I read this, I was so curious. Reading the post in at its beginning made me worry about what the husband might have stumbled upon when he went home. But getting to the end, I was reminded how difficult the job of a housewife is, especially a work-at-home mom like my wife is.

“Jennie, thank you for the many things you do at home especially those that I do not express my appreciation for. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for juggling things at home, the chores, keeping our house tidy and clean as best as you can, for homeschooling our son and still managing to get to our pandora beads hobby and look beautiful and feel fresh when I get home. You are such a blessing to me and Jed and I want everyone reading this post that I appreciate you and your heroic efforts at home. I love you!”

Please, take a look at the post below.


A man came home from work and found his 5 children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden, The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door, he found …an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel… She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’ She again smiled and answered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?…
”Yes,” was his incredulous reply..
She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it.
