The Housewife

"It is my belief that the housewife makes the home,
...and the home makes the nation"

I always find your passion for homemaking fascinating. It seems so traditional and "old fashioned" that perhaps I reject it because I like being a woman who lives in the current times -- with the freedoms and opportunities that many women didn't have even 50 years ago. However, I do agree with the quote that a home is the starting point for making a greater society. In my work at CASA that became abundantly clear. But I also see it in "good" families who raise rotten children -- spoiled, pampered, "me first", "you owe me", sort of children.

I'm glad to know you because you bring a different perspective to my life...you are probably the most "different" person I know :D
