Happy Mother’s Day!

Chesterton on the Importance of Motherhood

If there is one thing I love about Chesterton more than any other, it is his respect- almost reverence- for motherhood and the role of women in the shaping of society. Happy Mother’s Day, friends.

    Happy Mother’s Day!
    “The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists, as the mother can love the unborn child.” – G. K. Chesterton
