Saluting Homemakers of Yesteryear and Today

Oh, I know that those rose-colored glasses we sometimes wear when viewing the world in hindsight do not give us 20-20 vision, but I think there were some beautiful and worthy aspects of the past that have been lost. I'd like to see some features of olden days return. Not all! 

I am not very interested in Facebook, but the small amount I was on during the past two political dust-ups cemented my determination to never bring politics into my blogging! So this is just a peek at the past, not a hidden message as to political leanings. 

Maybe I will retype the creed and add "I Believe...homemaking should include cross-stitch, embroidery, crocheting, or other needlework each day." Ha!

  3. This is such a good post! I think home making and child rearing has taken such a back seat to other things these days and I believe it is a very noble and necessary career. I have been a homemaker for the past 45 years and I never wanted to do anything else! And thank you for no politics. I am not a political person and it has all become a bit much.

    1. I agree with you. I would like to see homemaking honored as a true profession. It is a profession AND a labor of love!

  5. I love your homemakers creed ( or should I say Betty Crockers homemaking creed. Did you know she wasn't (isn't) a real person? Too bad. She could be good inspiration.)

    1. Say it isn't so, Granny Marigold! Well, I appreciate her just as if she was real!

  6. Maintaining a home is a full time profession, no matter how many people are involved and responsible.

  7. It's a lovely creed, but I agree with Granny Marigold. Betty Crocker was not a real person, but a concoction created to sell cook books, recipes, and cake mixes.
