Some words to ponder

"To a great extent the level of any civilization is the level of its womanhood. When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women." ~Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

What is the level of our womanhood? This gives us an idea of where we are and where we should be.

This is beautiful and reminds me of the many stories my grandmother used to tell me about her parents. They are the storybook romance of our family not because they were rich or famous but because they loved each other with full and respectful hearts. From this deep well they loved their family limitlessly. Beautiful blog!
