This post was by Chris W. Our 1 year old has had a stomach bug the last couple of days – lots of laundry + little sleep = no fun. Watching my wife in action reminded me of something Lorenzo Snow said:
A mother who has brought up a family of faithful children ought to be saved if she never does another good thing.
I would like to universalize that statement just a little:
A mother who has lovingly brought up a family of children ought to be saved if she never does another good thing.
I’m very happy to see mormon culture adopt (albeit slowly) many of the feminist ideals. As we progress on this front, I hope that we are able to maintain our reverence for and support of mothers.
ETA: In my own defense, I want to clarify that I was not a spectator to the parenting this weekend. I was simply impressed at how dedicated, patient, and tender my wife is with my daughter.
