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.
