“BLESSINGS on the hand of women!
Angels guard its strength and grace.
In the palace, cottage, hovel,
Oh, no matter where the place;
Would that never storms assailed it,
Rainbows ever gently curled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle,
Is the hand that rules the world.”
~ William Ross Wallace (1819-1881)
Dear homemaker, your influence is of the uttermost importance, your work is absolutely vital... you are essential. “For the hand that rocks the cradle, Is the hand that rules the world.” With love, JES
