A Mother's Abode
Happy the man with a nursing child, for he has a singing
wife. - GERMAN PROVERB
Perhaps the greatest social service that can be rendered by
anybody...is to bring up a family. But...there is a very general
disposition to regard a married woman's work as no work at all, and
to take it as a matter of course that she should not be paid for it.-
GEORGE BERNARD SHAW.
Nursing remains an invaluable mothering tool to soothe
hurts, calm an overtired and wound-up child, and create an island
of safety in a sometimes unfriendly environment. - KATHLEEN RANDOLPH
