There is just something about nice, 60 degree weather, having the windows open, an old record playing, and being on your hands and knees scrubbing floors. It's so fun! It's so enjoyable. :D
Who ever said that being a stay at home daughter was boring, and a waste of your life? It's so fulfilling to scurry about cleaning, cooking and singing. :)
I've tried the whole deal of going to work and helping to support the family. That's fun and all. It's great to know you're able to help the family, and be useful to others.
It's great having opportunity to witness to others while you work. But there is nothing like being a homemaker. :D
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
Part of "worketh willingly with her hands" is house work. And it can be fun! Provided we have the right heart attitude.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
Believe me. It takes strength to scrub floors ;) Staying at home does not mean you're doing nothing! There is So much to do at home.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Looking well to the ways of your household... that can be taken many different place, and still not be off topic. :)
I think most of us see it as keeping things running smoothly. Having supper on the table at a good time, keeping things clean, and tidy. But it goes deeper than that.
There is more to looking well the ways of your household than having the house clean. There must be a joyful spirit, a cheerful, humble attitude.

It's glorious to be a stay at home daughter, and to be in training. Cleaning is so fun! Especially with good music to sing along with, birds singing outside, and a fresh spring breeze coming in the windows. :D
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
