Quote of the Week: Ruling the World

"Blessings on the hand of women!
Angels guard its strength and grace, In the palace, cottage, hovel, Oh, no matter where the place; Would that never storms assailed it, Rainbows ever gently curled; For the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world"
- William Ross Wallace

Last year I attended a devotional for mothers. The speaker had just given up a high paying CEO position in a major company to become a full time stay at home mom. It was not an easy decision but she felt it was the right one for the family. When asked by a co-worker why she did it she replied. “It is said that the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world—so I’m just going to have to be satisfied ruling the world for a while.” Ever since then, this has been one of my favorite poems.
