"Woman, how divine your mission,
Here upon our natal sod;
Keep—oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world."
-William Ross Wallace
*In honor of the holiday, I'm giving myself today off. I'll be back tomorrow with Features from the link party, so be sure to link up today if you haven't already!
