… from Mrs. Dunwoody:
“In these notes, I have endeavored to impart knowledge necessary for keeping a neat, well-ordered home. But beyond that, I wish for you to understand the larger issues of homekeeping — creating an environment in which all family members grow and thrive, a place where each member may evolve to the full extent our Creator intended.”
[Mrs. Dunwoody, the wife of a judge in Georgia, was the “Martha Stewart” of her time during the Civil War. She started her journal (notes) on homemaking in 1866, and would spend the next 50 years to complete her notes.]
Reading through her snippets on homemaking always inspire me to strive to be more excellent. Thanks for stopping by — I hope you have a marvelous day!
