These quotes all came from a great book I just checked out at the library: Mothers and Daughters at Home by Charlotte Lyons. It is inspirational and encouraging and also gives you great ideas of craft/cooking projects moms and daughters can make together broken down by time available- one hour, half a day, all day, over the weekend, and as long as it takes. Another book I highly recommend.
