A laborious, gigantic career...

A sweet friend sent this to was a word of encouragement to may be to you as well!
Thanks, Carolyn! This came at a perfect time for me to read!

"How can it be a large career to tell other people's children about arithmetic and a small career to tell one's own children about the universe?

How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone and narrow to be everything to someone?

No, a woman's function is laborious because it is gigantic, not because it is minute."

G. K. Chesterton

Oh, Nekey, I too love this quote!
My girlfriend sent this to me (unknowingly) at the perfect time! I plan to share it in my next homeschool newsletter, for I do think it's so encouraging to moms who do sacrifice so much to better their families....and can be so burnt out at this time of year! I hope y'all are having a wonderful Christmas season!
