Household Drudgery or Eternal Worth?
"Once a woman came upon three mothers at work.
'What are you doing?' she asked of them.
" 'I'm doing the weekly washing', answered the first.
" 'I'm doing a bit of household drudgery", replied the second.
" 'I'm mothering three young children who some day will fill important and useful spheres in life, and wash-day is a part of my grand task in caring for these souls who shall live forever,' replied the third. Only she had caught a vision of the great work she was doing."
