Ever since I can remember, I've wanted to be a stay at home wife/mom. I've never gotten excited about going to college and becoming a career woman. That just isn't who I am. I get excited about taking care of my home and my kids.
As to why? I don't have a straight answer for that. It's something that's built into me. I fully believe that it's what I am called to be. I want to spend my days caring for my kids and keeping house. Obviously I would do other things as well, such as ministry, but my "life's work" would be my family, and I'm totally okay with that.
The unfortunate part is I have to wait for it to be time for that. I'm not at that point in my life yet. I have to figure out what to do with my time until then.
