A Window into Life in the Suburbs


"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

A Tribute to the Iron Lady

I've finally started reading Claire Berlinski's biography of Margaret Thatcher (been sitting beside my bed for a couple of months) and came across this wonderful tribute from the author regarding her subject here.

I was meditating upon that and thinking of my beloved Margaret Thatcher. She was, famously, tenderly devoted to her husband, to whom she was very happily married. She insisted upon cooking him his breakfast every morning, no matter what the demands of her day as Prime Minister of Britain. His death devastated her.
Don't know why... but of all the impressive things Mrs Thatcher did in her life, that one is the one that impresses me most. It tells me more about the woman than anything else, I think.
