As the mother of four, the one chore in our home that never seems to be done is the laundry. My laundry room always has clothes to be cleaned and I started calling it my office because I spend so much time in that room. I used to get very frustrated, especially when they were younger, at the amount of work and wonder what they possible could have done that made their socks so dirty. I believe that as their mother that this is one of the ways that I take care of them. But, I didn’t like the way it made me feel and I had to find a better way. And the “better way” came home with me and now hangs next to my washing machine, The Polish Madonna.
It is an image of Mary hanging laundry while the infant Jesus sits next to her in the dirt. In His hands, Jesus is holding His cross - so powerful. It makes me understand that a few dirty socks are nothing compared to what Mary endured as a mother.
