No Slatterns Here

Daily Draw: Druidcraft Tarot ~ Queen of Coins

Remember the days when mothers were referred to as housewives? And our grandmothers would use the word slattern if the home was in disarray? There have always been Queens who worked outside the home in all professions, not just doing 'women's work' as nurses, teachers, waitresses, cleaners, office help...

I'm reminded by this Queen, of Brenda's mother, a switchboard operator.  I thought it must be the most glamorous job on the planet. And my aunt Gloria and Theresa's Grandma Bessie who cleaned banks. Can you imagine? Being the only one in a bank? All that said to say, a working mother must be special goddess, how they manage to do it all is a great mystery to me.
