Karen Andreola has a wonderful new article over at Homeschool Highlights about "The Majesty of Motherhood."
At the time of the year 2000 celebrations a vast majority of people voted Queen Elizabeth 1st of England a favorite person of the millennium. I happened to be reading aloud to my children from Queen Elizabeth and the Spanish Armada by Frances Winwar. When I got to the following sentences I jotted them down. “It is not easy to be queen. But she was a queen, and so always she must think first for her country and her people, before she thought of herself.” Isn’t this what a loving and diligent mother does everyday as she serves the children of her realm in all the hundreds of little duties she carries out minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day?
We are having rain and chilly temperatures here this weekend. I wish I could stay home with my woodstove lit, candles burning, and read, read, read to the kids and for myself. However, I must get everyone up and out the door for a field trip to the fire company, and then drop little ones at grandma's house while I go get groceries.
I'll be glad to get home this afternoon!
