It's really no surprise to me that I am a homemaker. But if you knew me when I was growing up, you would never have pegged me as one. Looking back, I didn't know at the time either that was actually my calling.
I was a mess as a kid and even into my 20's. But when I look back I see all the signs of a homemaker in progress.
For example, I was a horrible student in every grade. I failed so many classes over the years. But the classes I didn't fail, and even excelled in, were Home Ec and cooking classes. PE too which is odd because I am no where near being athletic.
In Home Ec I successfully raised egg babies and learned how to care for children and the home. In my cooking classes, which I took all 4 years of highschool, I found my favorite thing to do was copy recipes onto recipe cards.
Fast forward to present day and you will see I am doing exactly those things. I am not doing math or science. I am homemaking and raising kids. I am also collecting old cookbooks and have a stash of old recipe boxes.
I held many jobs before becoming a mother including being a hairdresser and an EMT. I am neither of those things professionally anymore but I am an amateur. Learning those skills after highschool apply to my life now. I cut my entire family's hair, and doctor their wounds.
From the time I was a little girl, all the way until the time I became a mother, I longed to be with women who were homemakers. I idolized them. I never knew why.
Now I do!
