The Newcastle, Australia, mom became "very emotional" when she saw the post, she told ABC News.

"I was in a room full of mums when I read it; who were also all in tears,” she added. “It was just what I needed to hear at that moment."

Since the post went viral, Kate Douglas said, she has been surprised by "mums who say that they have never felt appreciated by their other half."

The comments on the post are overwhelmingly positive. "Wow! You have a king! So nice to know that a man actually realizes what we do all day! We NEVER clock off! He is a keeper," Lisa Compagne wrote.

"This bloke is an incredible role model for his sons,” Pauline Matejczuk wrote. “They can't fail with his attitude.”

Scott Douglas is "surprised" by the reaction to his tribute, he told ABC News.

"I think it has resonated so well because any type of mother, whether working or stay-at-home put so much pressure on themselves to make sure the household stays in order and the kids have everything they need,” he said.

“Then when a bad day comes along they question themselves. I think with what I wrote has let them know they are not alone by having those days but also there are positives in those days, and to be appreciated for the bad days is very rewarding for them too."
