You know that moment when you feel unappreciated? Or, how about the day(s) that you wish you could quit? Those days it seems like everything is falling apart in the house, the messes are multiplying, the laundry is piling up, the family is hungry and you’re sick of cooking. How is it that everyone else’s life seems more glamorous than yours?
Friend, we have been there so many times and back more times than we can count.
The difference between housekeeping and homemaking is significant. The latter is creating the environment of love, peace and joy. Housekeeping is encompassed in homemaking. Homemaking includes care of the home, family, body, mind, and spirit; your’s and your family’s.
