{on being at home}

Educated women in the home? What an odd thing to deplore! What better place to have us “end up”. . . What more important job is there than sharing the values we are learning to cherish with the next generation of adults? What more strategic place could there be for the educated woman? 
-Edith F. Hunter
 
Don't you just need to hear something like this sometimes? When the day gets dull and you wash the billionth dish, it is noon and you haven't made your bed, your kid smears his food on his clothes and on the floor creating yet another task to add to your endless list of things to do.
Do you need to be reminded that you are not just completing menial jobs? I certainly do. 
How refreshing to be reminded that I am shaping a man. 
My home -- a strategic place. What a wonderful phrase!
