These words I find heartwarming, words to strengthen me as I go about each day in my faith, loving my family and tending to our humble homespun cottage.
Every true wife makes her husband's interests her own. While he lives for her, carrying her image in his heart and toiling for her all the days, she thinks only of what will do him good. When burdens press upon him she tries to lighten them by sympathy, by cheer, by the inspiration of love. She enters with zest and enthusiasm into all his plans. She is never a weight to drag him down; she is his strength in his heart to help him ever to do nobler and better things.
~ J. R, Miller ~
The woman, who makes a sweet, beautiful home, filling it with love and prayer and purity, is doing something better than anything else her hands could find to do beneath the skies. A true mother is one of the holiest secrets of home happiness. God sends many beautiful things to this world, many noble gifts; but no blessing is richer than that which He bestows in a mother who has learned loves lessons well, and has realized something of the meaning of her sacred calling.

I fall short of these precious words.
My prayer is that I will always do the very best that I know how.
