Mothering ~ No Ordinary Work

"No ordinary work done by a man is either as hard or as responsible as the work of a woman who is bringing up a family of small children; for upon her time and strength demands are made not only every hour of the day but often every hour of the night."
~ Theodore Roosevelt

"Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her."
~ Proverbs 31:28

    1. Like they say, a man's work is from sun to sun, a woman's work is never done :)

  2. True, so true! Happy Mother's Day, JES!!

Thank you for speaking out on the important things!~ God bless you all :)
