"A Wealth of Children"
I recently read this phrase, regarding a certain culture's attitude toward large families. It's unfortunate that we don't often encounter that sentiment in mainstream American life. How many people in our current culture actually think "wealth" when hearing of a family with 4, 6, 8 or even more children? Such a beautiful way to think! I am filing it away in the back of my mind for future reference. It's delightful to be reminded that children are more truly "wealth" than any of our material goods.
Married to the hardworking Jeff, mother of focused Brendan (12), inventive Benjamin (10) and sweet Molly (6), plus several in heaven. My passions in life include my family, my faith, birth issues, home learning, and creative arts of all kinds. Welcome to my cozy world - sit down and have a cup of tea while we catch up. So glad you visited!
