This is great! I especially like: when I removed the “Do not disturb” sign from my heart

You have woven wonderful parallels throughout the entire piece. Thank you!

So true! As another stay at home Mum who is truly grateful for the role, I did nevertheless relate well, especially the line: "I sensed that my cynical hotel musings were the beginnings of a bad attitude" Oh how often I've caught myself in this, and, often, like you, turned to His Word, and found refreshing and a better POV! God Bless, Karen

'Someone does clean for me.' Love that line. Came at me out of left field and bought the whole of your story together. Not just for the stay at home mums. Really enjoyed this one.

Great entry. I like when you retrieved the devotional booklet and said "Maybe I need this more than they do". I see your whole perspective change from then on. Very good.

I loved this! It's very well-done, and told with a warm and witty voice. I'm not sure about the title; it led me to expect a far different kind of piece. Very, very good devotional.

I liked this piece. I can identify totally! I feel that way sometimes and then I think of all that God has done for me and I praise Him. Isn't God wonderful. This is a wonderful meditation.
LOVED this! You had me laughing in the beginning... and I loved "aren't they supposed to rise up and call me blessed?" Too funny... loved how you turned it into a thoughtful piece. Horay for "stay-at-home" moms (I have six children) and the servant heart we must have to remain "right" with our position. We have been blessed. Blessings, Amy Verlennich
