30 something- Carmen S



This is what I've come to believe as a stay at home mom:
“I think I can understand that feeling about a housewife’s work being like that of Sisyphus (In Greek Mythology: As a punishment for his trickery, King Sisyphus was made to roll a huge boulder up a steep hill. Before he could reach the top, however, the massive stone would always roll back down, forcing him to begin again). But it is surely in reality the most important work in the world. What do ships, railways, miners, cars, government etc. exist for except that people may be fed, warmed, and safe in their own homes? As Dr. Johnson said, ‘To be happy at home is the end of all human endeavour’… So your job is the one for which all others exist…” (Letters of C. S.  Lewis, pg 447, 1988 ed.)
