Lesson from our foremothers

"If our pioneer foremothers could successfully bring up ten children while boiling laundry, grinding wheat for bread, and keeping dirt floors clean, then what's stopping us? Don't fear hard work. Embrace it and learn to do it as unto the Lord." - Jennie Chancey

I like that quote! The pioneer women kinda make us look wimpy, huh?

Amazing quote. I agree with Amy. I felt very wimpy. My dishwasher, washer, dryer, stove, airconditioning.... car, telephone, ok, I'm going to stop before I feel any smaller than a mouse. :-)

I wanted to remind you about Momentous Monday tomorrow. I wish I could help you link up. Let me give it one more try, k? {grin}

Write your post. Publish it, then view your blog and click on the title of your new post. This will give you the specific link to that post in your internet bar. Copy and paste it. Then head to my blog. On the Mcklinky box you will see the words "You are next click here to enter". Click that. Then type in a title or just your name. and then paste in your link in the box it asks for link. Then click the enter your link button, and you should be all set! I hope it works!
