A slice of advice:
Raising a family is both a blessing and a challenge. Often you have both parents working outside the home and if you’re a stay at home mom you have more work than can be handled between the hours of 9-5. The key is to work as a team.
I remember some years ago my husband and I were running with the busy-ness of the day and we were both ready to pass out. My youngest at the time wanted to go out to play and neither one of us could see straight, let alone think straight.
Of course this was a problem because it created tension and strife. When the two of you are tired it can create anger and resentment toward each other. This is important to keep in mind and why you both can’t be tired at the same time. Don’t let resentment build. Get rest when you need it.
The demands of raising a family take a lot of work, sacrifice and discipline. Your family must be a priority, but so should your marriage relationship. Keeping love alive is the key to a successful marriage and in doing so you keep the family well and strong.
