Marmee-isms ~#9~ Unlocking the Treasures of Home-Love

"The household happiness did not come all at once, but John & Meg had found the key to it, & each year of married life taught them how to use it, unlocking the treasuries of real home-love & mutual helpfulness, which the poorest may possess, & the richest cannot buy. This is the sort of shelf on which young wives & mothers may consent to be laid, safe from the restless fret & fever of the world, finding loyal lovers in the little sons & daughters who cling to them, undaunted by sorrows, poverty, or age; walking side by side, through fair & stormy weather, with a faithful friend, who is, in the true sense of the good old Saxon word, the 'house-band,' & learning, as Meg learned, that a woman's happiest kingdom is home, her highest honor that art of ruling it, not as a queen, but a wise wife & mother."

Little Women ~ Chapter 38

{Dedicated to my Sweetheart, my husband, my "house-band" ~ we will celebrate 27 years of marriage in a mere 3 days. He is the godly husband my parents & I always prayed I would have. I am a blessed woman.}
