.  Blessed is she whose daily tasks are of love; for her willing hands and happy heart transform duty into joyous service to all her family and God.

.  Blessed is she who opens the door to welcome both stranger and well-loved friend; for gracious hospitality is a test of brotherly love.

.  Blessed is she who mends stockings and toys and broken hearts; for her understanding is a balm to her husband and children.

.  Blessed is she who scours and scrubs; for well she knows that cleanliness is one expression of godliness.

.  Blessed is she whom children love; for the love of a child is of greater value than fortune or fame.

.  Blessed is she who sings at her work; for music lightens the heaviest load and brightens the dullest chore.

.  Blessed is she who dusts away doubt and fear and sweeps out the cobwebs of confusion, for her faith will triumph over all adversity.

.  Blessed is she who serves laughter and smiles with every meal; for her cheerfulness is an aid to mental and physical digestion.

.  Blessed is she who introduces Jesus Christ to her children; for godly sons and daughters shall be her reward.

.  Blessed is she who preserves the sacredness of the Christian home; for hers is a divine trust that crowns her with dignity.
