A Mother's Function

Apple of Her Eye by Loren Entz
Apple of Her Eye

Another favorite . . .

To be Queen Elizabeth within a definite area,
deciding celebrations, labors, banquets, and holidays;

To be Sears within a certain area, providing toys, boots, cakes, and books;

To be Aristotle within a certain area, teaching morals, manners, theology, and hygiene;

I can understand how this might exhaust the mind,
but I cannot imagine how it could narrow it.

How can it be a large career to tell other people's children about the rule of three
And a small career to tell one's own children about THE UNIVERSE?

How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone,
And narrow to be EVERYTHING to someone?

No, a mother's function is laborious not because it is minute,
but because it is GIGANTIC.
