Hope your summer is off to a great start. Just have a minute because my daughter, Mary, is waiting patiently for me to read the next chapter in Mother, by Kathleen Norris. What on earth would we do without great books? Mother instills the value of motherhood, and as young Margaret Paget learns to appreciate her own mother,
and her mother's self-sacrificing for her family. She nearly missed it. You will love it!
Here's a little sampling from our last reading. Margaret's father is speaking:
"Wherever you go my dear," he said, "I want you always to remember that a virtuous woman is precious in the sight of God. Fame, fortune, and education do not alone make a woman." He smiled at Mother. "A true woman can serve in a palace or a cottage with contentment and joy."
Be sure to let me know in the comments what I can pray for you.
It is my honor to do that for you.
