Lessons from the farm..learn to make bicuits

My hands are in dough again.
I pull the familiar dough bowl

out from underneath

and start working on whipping

up some biscuits.

The virus has run it's way through

my home and left me

with tired and grumpy children.

I knead my dough.

I know they'll eat every last one

I put out even if they say

they're not hungry.

The smell alone will cause them

to stand and linger in my kitchen.

These little ones that I'm entrusted to.

I will feed

and I pray mamma's biscuits will

bring you back to full health once again..

I smile a smile of knowing them so well.

This is motherhood at it's best.

Amish home-made biscuits

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup of homemade mayonnaise

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon sugar

A while ago I visited your blog and heard soulful violin music - I think it was. If possible, would you please direct me to that music or similar violin sounds. I love your blog, your heart, and the music you put up on your blog. Thank you for being an encouragement to young moms like myself trying to make my way through this world. Sincerely, Liz
