“I always wondered why the makers leave housekeeping and cooking out of their tales. Isn't it what all the great wars and battles are fought for -- so that at day's end a family may eat together in a peaceful house?”
—Ursula K. Le Guin
There is honor in your domesticity— in your tending of house and caring for animals and the way you are living life with your children.
To make a home is sacred work. To pour love into every meal, every laundered item, every swept floor.
Homemaking is undervalued, yet is the cornerstone of a child’s existence. Your home is a refuge in a chaotic world and curating a safe, warm place for your loved ones to thrive is such a tender offering.
This society will try and sell you the idea that the world out there is better and more important than anything you’re doing at home. But, it’s an illusion.
You are important.
You are valued.
And the world may not see it, but I do. God does. And those around you see it, too.
