Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen has quickly apologized after a derisive comment about Ann Romney for having “never worked a day in her life.” Mrs. Romney has raised five sons, which many women will tell you is nothing less than a full-time job.
As the son of a stay-at-home mom, I can attest that my mother was as busy as anyone while raising my brother, sister and me. And I can say without reservation that I am so glad she was there for us, a shining example of a Christian mother. I am aware that some moms have to work but I think there is no higher calling for a woman than being a full-time mom to her kids. Mrs. Romney noted that she “made a choice” to stay home with her kids and I think she should be admired for that decision.
Stay-at-home mothers should be admired and cherished, no matter what leading political operatives or our fickle society may think. More specifically, ladies who dedicate their lives to teaching and exemplifying God’s Word to their children and in their community are needed now, more than ever.
