Today is a very special day. It’s my Momma’s birthday!
My mom is the consummate homemaker. I mentioned in my opening post how she created a place that I didn’t want to leave. I have found the same love for homemaking. Several months ago, my Mom sent me a text containing a quote she read:
“Creating a place to nurture life is at the heart of what it means to be a woman.”
-Nancy Leigh DeMoss, from her book True Woman 101
I was so struck by that thought. Please keep in mind that Nancy DeMoss is not married. You don’t have to have a husband or children in order to nurture life! One of the definitions of the word nurture is “to support and encourage.” I’ve found that supporting the life of my husband can be as simple as making sure his work clothes are clean! How are you using your home to nurture others?
Oh, and I’d love for you to stop over at my Mom’s blog and wish her a happy birthday!
