Motherhood is a JOB!


I have a JOB!

How can I hate a JOB?

It’s a hug

It’s love

It’s kisses

It’s funny antics

It’s a prayer

It’s a frown

It’s a tantrum

It’s a battle

It’s a scar

It’s grrrr

Everyday is Valentine’s Day,

Resurrection, Halloween,

Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving

Sweet, saucy, spicy or scary

That’s my JOB – Jar Of Blessings!

What is yours?

    Loved it – jar of blessings, that’s a cool way of looking at it. For me I’ve looked at it as sort of like living in a past alternate reality where I’m like looking at the what could have been thusly allowing me to experience my childhood from an entirely different perspective

      That’s interesting — redreaming 🙂 As parents we can offer to our kiddos the experiences that we have missed. Blessings to you and your family.

    Its true being a mother is quite a job..even as i get older i still drive my mom crazy at times, but i love her dearly..all mothers deserve the most love in this world we sud cherish them..becos if they gone we’ll all be lost.

    to replace us by any
    means necessary

  18. Your job is nurture, love, to be as close to Christ as any human comes, for that is a mother, and a countless myriad of things besides.
    My Job is pest, reluctant student, help, and a thousand annyances and yet cause for pride, cause for joy, one who can read you and hug you and care, one who can know what you’re trying to hide and just try to help, even though you’re hiding it for my job is offspring :). And yet we do nothing compared to you, for mothers are the third most important person(s) to have walked the earth.

  23. -D Says:

    Indeed! No one can undermine the JOB of a mother.

  24. You approach motherhood the way you approach life – something valuable, worthy and full of reward. What a refreshing view of the concept JOB

      got to lighten the load
      that is called for a JOB
      thus when i feel
      like resigning
      i got to start thinking
      this is a great JOB!


  25. That is a great poem! And motherhood certainly is a job, but I am so glad you enjoy it. I enjoy it, too.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      nothing beats motherhood
      it challenges our moods
      i am enjoying all of it
      and think that kiddos are great.
      thank God for mothers like you
      who brightens others too

  26. LOL… that is my JOB, too!

    Sometimes I can’t wait for my kids to grow up; sometimes I wish there were no weekends so I won’t have to deal with this “JOB” for a whole 48 hours. But when I see them all sleeping, I feel like waking them up so they can drive me crazy all over again.

    It really is a wonderful job! The mixed emotions, the struggles, the happiness and everyday is a learning experience. 🙂
    God bless and looking forward for more interesting and inspiring thoughts.
