Chapter 9 when Marmee is telling the girls her ‘plans’ for them. –
“Make this home happy, so that you may be fit for homes of your own… ” She goes on to tell them its ok to hope for it and prepare for it so when the happy time comes, they feel ready for the duties and worthy of the joy.
Thinking of our daughters one day leaving to start their own families and homes is bitter sweet. I love this reminder for us moms though to help prepare our little girls for that time. We want them to be content with what God gives them and succeed in this beautiful role God calls them to. I definitely didn’t feel prepared when I got married and I hope to train Emma up in a way to love and care well for her own home and the people in it one day. 🤍
