They bring life, they bring harmony and composure, they acknowledge the growth of the members of this new surname, they mind the home and the hearth! They are quite unique.

“God bless them all that adorn these qualifications, for they are the rulers, the future, the ones that shall be obeyed. They are the women, the female, the better half of mankind and they are indeed superior.

“To that superiority may I dedicate this blog to all those among us that endorse such detail. You have lived and loved and taken care and administered your prevalence. You have been strong and weak together. You have managed the home, the nest that you build, to welcome the partner as your own, you are superior.”
