"My advice is to go into something and stay with it until you like it. You can't like it until you obtain expertise in that work. And once you are an expert, it's a pleasure." ~ Milton Garland

It is Important!

“In spite of our many labor saving devices, many homes are in a state of disaster – a total lack of management, the cupboards bare, meals irregular or not on time and the house in a state of confusion. The home is an institution and should be run like a well organized hospital, church or school. We are raising human beings, entitled to the best the parents can offer. Anything less is not even acceptable. Determine to make a success of your career in the home, as the patient and understanding wife, excellent homemaker and devoted mother.”

~ Mrs. Helen Andelin

"Many women fail to find happiness in homemaking because they go only the first mile.  They give only the bare stint of requirement – just enough to get by.  They feed and clothe the family and keep the house reasonably clean, but not an ounce more.  Their meals are quick and easy, and then they’re off to an outside diversion.  Women who give just enough to get by never enjoy homemaking.  You have to go the second mile to enjoy anything.”

 ~ Mrs. Helen Andelin from Page 254 of Fascinating Womanhood (2007 Edition)
