I tried to find a picture of this book online but it's out of print so I took a picture of my copy (well, actually it's my brother-in-law Danial's copy...he collects old books...I borrowed it from him 7 years ago, thanks Danial). I wanted to make it a real nice picture so I moved all the clutter off the counter and added these dried flowers which I retrieved from the top shelf in my laundry room...in doing so I found all kinds of "treasures" I didn't know were up there. As I removed the layers of dust from the jar I was reminded of how badly I need this blog!
Daryl Hoole (from here out I'll just refer to her as D) says in her book, It is sad to hear a woman lament (I had to look that word up, it means--to express sorrow, to mourn), "I am just a housewife." If only she could realize that she is a homemaker by divine appointment. Making a home is a special mission for a woman. It is no accident. This is where God intended her to be...This task is second in importance to none...running a home challenges any other role in requiring intelligence, ingenuity, and abilities unnumbered. It can offer the most noble accomplishment and can bring the greatest joy and satisfaction of any type of work. We women must be proud to be homemakers.
I am proud to be a homemaker (and an American) and hope that my mother, Aunt Jeri, Aunt Pam, sisters, sister-in-laws, and the couple of friends who will read my blog, are proud to be homemakers too! If all goes well, I'll be an even better homemaker at the close of 2010!
Tune in January 1st for my first project...drum roll...the shelves in the laundry room!
