I wanted to make a comment on what an apron does for me and speaks to me. This may bore some of you off your rockers, but it was tugging at my heart strings.
An apron makes me feel like I am dressed to prepare a meal for those I love. To do a job that is much needed and required. I want to fulfill my calling as a women, wife, and mother. And for some reason it makes me feel like it is a small thing. But it gives myself and my family a happy feeling, knowing that when they see Mom or Grandma with her apron on, something must be cooking.
I love to wear my aprons, and I have many ones to choose from. I like to even sew them in many
different colors and patterns. I believe it has been a ministry to make them and give them away, to encourage women to be keepers of their homes.
Now, my aprons are not all balled up in a pile, but rather I love to wash and iron them. I keep them
in a drawer in my kitchen. And I have them ready to pick a new one every couple of days.
I have a sweet little hanger hook shaped like a tea pot that I hang my apron on that I am using,
on any given day. I can actually feel a difference about being in the kitchen as soon
as I put my apron on.
If you have never worn an apron I encourage you to try wearing one, you just may realize
that this is what you have been missing!
May your kitchen smell heavenly!
May you feel lovely and domestic!
