A Moment for Moms

Home is where the heart is. Home is where we learn to
work and get along. Home is where we are nourished physically, mentally
and spiritually.
The germ of the oak is nourished and protected by the
substance of the acorn until it is strong enough to draw its food directly from
the earth, and to withstand the tempest and the scorching sun.
When the
mother shades the windows of the nursery, she but unconsciously imitates the
Creator of her child, who through the institution of home has shut from his
feeble and nascent mind the flashing colors of the too brilliant world.

Our Home, The Key to a Nobler Life by C. E. Sargent A. M.
There are many exciting years ahead for my children. Now is not the time for the brilliance of the world.
It’s time to stay home.
