Daily Prompt: It is a Truth

Today’s Daily Prompt

Take the first sentence from your favorite book and make it the first sentence of your post.

IT is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. (Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice)

pride and prejudiceThis quote is from one of my all-time favorite books and authors.  I love a book that escorts me back to much simpler times.  Yes, there were some strange societal rules and it would appear odd to most American women that the primary goal of the Bennet mother and daughters was marriage and the wealthier, the better.  However, to the delight of the reader, you were exposed to the entire love-package as well in Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy.

Personally, I think the goal of marriage and motherhood a very worthy one (even if that is the primary goal).  Yes, I just said that and perhaps you would call me old fashioned.  I consider myself very blessed to have been married for a very long time and have two beautiful daughters, one of whom is now a mother herself.  I also work full-time, but my jobs as wife, mother and even domestic engineer are the most important ones to me and also the ones I’ve found to be most fulfilling.

My highest calling in this life has been to my family; to love and nurture them to the best of my ability with God’s grace and guidance.
