Saintly Quote of the Day
“It is most laudable in a married woman to be devout, but she must never forget that she is a housewife. And, sometimes she must leave God at the altar to find him in her housekeeping.”
This isn’t one of my favorite quotes, but it is a necessary one for me to reflect on, as housework isn’t one of my favorite things to do. I like things clean, but like others to clean them or to at least share in the duties of cleaning. Cooking is more creative and a little more appealing to me. As a priest reminded me recently, we must have a balanced life – which is a continual challenge for many of us.
