As a young wife, a mother of 2 small children, and a homemaker (a noble calling long overlooked for its value) I am always on the lookout for practical, economical ways of serving my family in the home.
The term "domestic" may be offensive to some, possibly sounding too old fashioned to be a good thing in our modern age. But I do not mention it to be negative. In fact, when you look at a few meanings of the word, I see nothing negative about it. According to websters.com, here are a few meanings...
domestic - duh-mes-tic
|1.||of or pertaining to the home, the household, household affairs, or the family: domestic pleasures.|
|2.||devoted to home life or household affairs.|
I love being a homemaker. I love being a wife and I love being a mother. I love learning how to be creative and practical in my own home. So, the word "domestic" and even the word "homemaker" are two words, two callings I am thankful for. :)
