Hullo!

I have not disappeared.  I could say things have been crazy... but then everyone says that... and I just did, too... and then, it's probably a basic fact of life for most of us Western World Dwellers.  Craziness of some sort, that is.

Anyways, I just wanted to say hey!  And to share a great homemaking quote from an amazing book.  This is part of the reason I value homemaking as a high and noble calling, which I am grateful to be able to pursue:

Through the whole panorama of Scripture (and through most of history), we see the home and family as woman’s context. Home was not woman’s prison — it was her base of operations, from which she engaged in commerce, ministry, charity, medicine, the arts, and more. The family, though, was always her priority.

-Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin, from their book So Much More-

"The family, though, was always her priority."  Good reminder to not get so caught up in the "stuff" of homemaking that I forget to love the people I'm doing those things for!

  2. That's right! It's very easy to forget that it's the people, in the end, not the things done that count. Good reminder...
