Good Morning, Monday,
I’m not sure if I want to get up and greet your chill, ignore the labor of your siren song, but I really have no choice. I’m up and writing and working. Shooing children out the door for school, sipping coffee. The lone bird song filters in through the office window sparkling with joy–joy that I am positive you, Monday, did give to her!
Today, I ponder these words by Mary Wollstonecraft in A Vindication of the Rights of Women:
“an unhappy marriage is often very advantageous to a family, and the neglected wife is, in general, the best mother.”(56)
What are your thoughts? Does an unhappy marriage mean we are better mothers?
