“Educated women in the home? What an odd thing to deplore! What better place to have us “end up”…What more important job is there than sharing the values we are learning to cherish with the next generation of adults? What more strategic place could there be for the educated woman?” ~Edith F. Hunter
I snatched this from Seeing the Everyday, a magazine I had the privilege to review a few years back. Never have I run across a publication so etched with beauty, so profoundly affecting, and with such a heartbeat for the family, filled with the things for which I am so passionate.
Have we ever lived in a day where the inhaling and exhaling of life is so uncelebrated? Where the growing of relationships through the slow, tender soil of time is stunted by our schedules? Do you know how much we miss when we are too busy, too distracted or just too forgetful of the “prosaic”?
Seeing the Everyday is on a mission to ignite a hunger in parents to tenderly bring up their children, magnifying the miniscule, and bringing life back into the home through the organic process of living together.
They yearn for us to see the hidden mysteries of the mundane, to know what social scientists are discovering: time together in the simple rhythms of life is paramount.
I give them a standing ovation.
I don’t, by the way, receive any benefit from recommending them to you. I just passionately share their mission.
Watch and see….it might even change you.
