The Symbol of a Beautiful Calling
Wearing an apron – I feel energized, motivated and domestic. It helps me to be a better keeper of my home, helps me to focus and reminds me to get things done! I also like to wear one since I can never find a dish towel to dry my hands in the kitchen and the pockets serve to carry tissue around to blow little noses. We’ve been married for almost 4 years and my apron collection has now increased as well as my knowledge of domestic things.
Some would view the word “apron” as a dismal word; a drudgery. To me, an apron is the symbol of a Beautiful Calling. Whether you stay at home or go out to work, as a wife and mother we are called to be keepers of the home. It is a God-given calling, a blessing and it can be a joy. It all depends on your attitude and how you view it. As silly as it sounds, wearing an apron helps me to keep the right attitude. Not all days but most days.A friend pointed me in the direction of a great store in Simcoe, ON called Ann’s Gifts & “Sew Much More”. It’s a fabulous place for great and fun aprons. She has made aprons for Chloe, Jaiden, my nephews and I. I would be happy to provide you with her contact information – just ask! Her her items are high quality and made with love and attention to detail! You won’t beleive her prices! It was Ann who passed this little saying on to me. I hope you enjoy it.
It has been said that it will be a long time before someone invents something that replaces the “old-time apron” that served so many purposes. I think they are right!
When I used to visit Grandma. I was very much impressed,
by her all-purpose apron, and the power it possessed.
