Big, frum families are a glory.
Here you have a mother pushing two babies in a carriage, with six older children holding on. It’s the most beautiful sight one can imagine.
Now, this woman is a plain woman to the outside world.
She’s dressed simply, she’s looks harried – of course she does; she has her children on her mind. She’s worried about them. She’s thinking about supper, and bedtime, and cleaning the house, and this child’s problem, and that child. She’s running a big operation, a big company, and has a lot on her shoulders.
So to the outside world, this woman is not the personification of the beautiful woman, of the perfect woman.
But to us, those who see the world through the eyes of Hashem, there is nothing more beautiful and more perfect than the mothers of our people.
That’s the genuine beauty!
Here's a gem from Rav Avigdor Miller's dvar Torah for Parshat Vayetzei:
Help a frum family get their children back!:
I'm a middle-aged housewife and mother in Eretz Yisrael who likes to read and write a lot.
