Having a mom that stays home fulltime is a luxury that not many families have nowadays. Many mothers are single and support their children by themselves. Even in two-parent households, families often need two incomes to stay afloat financially. And some moms simply aren’t suited to being at home with their children fulltime. They need the professional challenges and camaraderie of the workplace in order to feel satisfied and whole.
The challenge for many working mothers is that they feel guilty because they aren’t with their children 24/7. As a result, they can’t give their children some of those wonderful extras that stay at home moms are able to provide. For instance, working moms aren’t able to greet their children when they come home from school with a tray of fresh baked cookies. They can’t help out in the classroom every week. And they likely aren’t serving on the PTA.
However, it is important to remember that there is no right way to be a mother. Great mothers don’t fit any particular mold. So, while stay at home moms bring certain blessings to their children, working moms have their own unique blessings to offer. In fact, working moms bring blessings to their children that they may not even realize.
The following are some of the wonderful blessings that working moms provide to their children. If you are a working mom, read on and be reminded of what a great mom you are!
