The other day my mom told my dad to set the table. She was sleepy and dad assured her he would take care of everything. After a while he called out everybody to join for dinner. I came from my room and there it was. The best dinner set up that I(read mom) could have ever asked for. Do you want to join us for dinner?
I think there is a reason why mom never asks dad to help her. In my dad’s defense, he did say : An apple a day keeps the doctor away!!! Right now mom is keeping him away from the kitchen.😂
It’s been ages since women dealt with household work and wouldn’t want men to interfere in between. Men would go out to earn and women would stay back and make the house suitable enough to call it a Home. The wife doesn’t really want any help from her husband (More so because even if their hubby’s intention is pure and they really want to help, they end up messing up and increasing the wife’s workload). Thankfully the notion has changed right now and both men and women work so that they can lead an independent life and it is their personal choice of what they want to pursue. That said, I do acknowledge the fact that nowadays even men actively take part in household activities which is great.
However, Playing an underdog here are the Housewives/homemakers. To begin with it is a very prestigious job in itself because that requires more patience than any other job. Also knowing the fact that you won’t get any salary at the end of the month, I bet none of us would be willing to take up the job in the first place itself. I know for a fact, I work because I get paid. I guess the same implies for all of us. We wouldn’t be working for any company just for free. Right? Suddenly we would be seen raising issues to the HR demanding our rights. But what about those who just out of selfless love take care of the house? Make home out of a mere house of bricks? Don’t they deserve to be paid if not by money, by love?
In fact if you have noticed, at times of tricky situations it is always the women(it can be your mom, wife, sister or friend) who provide you the best suggestions to deal with it. Is there something they can’t do? Well there is. They can’t say No. Such big is their heart.
All my love goes out to those who make this world so much better place to live in. Salute to their patience. Salute to their ability to tackle any/all the situations. Salute to their ever smiling faces . Salute to them for their warm hugs. Salute to the super-woman’s in our lives.
Have you met your superwomen yet? Or are you a superwomen yourself. Don’t you think they deserve all the applauds. If yes then go thank them today. They don’t expect much. Just a token of love is enough for them. ♥
Do you have any incident to share where you asked your husband, dad, friend or as a mater of fact anybody for help but that just increased your task. It would be fun to know how you dealt with it.
PS : I love you mom. ❤
I Heart You All ❤
