Being a mom is a wonderful thing, but it’s not easy. In fact, it’s not an exaggeration to say that it might just be the hardest job in the world. Still, many women out there give up their career and day job to be work as moms full time.
Sure, this isn’t a job that brings in a paycheck, but it’s just as important and as difficult as any job you can think of. But not everybody sees it that way. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for resentment to arise between a wife and husband for this reason.
This story that went viral online is about a stay-at-home mom and her husband who was working a full-time job at an office. Tired of being the sole provider of the family, the man prays to God to let him switch places with his wife. So God grants him this wish.
Having to experience the hurdles that come with being a full-time mom, and having to do all the chores that moms do without ever complaining, the man finally understood that he’s much better off just going at the office. He was exhausted, and couldn’t understand how his wife manages to do it all by the time he gets back from work.
Having learned this important lesion, he asked the Lord to let them trade back places. God agreed to change things to how they were initially, but only for nine months.
The punchline? The man got pregnant. Make sure to share this story if you know any moms who are overworked and underappreciated.
