I Said Yes


They asked for biscuits and
I said yes
the flour, the butter, lots of butter,
the egg, the milk,
the salt, the sugar, the baking powder
the mess on the counter
some spilling to the floor.

There’s no substitute for
biscuits made by hand (which equals love)
maybe not good for the body but
terrifically good for the soul.

Someday they won’t ask me
for biscuits though maybe
they’ll make them on their own
and maybe the flour will spill to their floors
and maybe they’ll remember the days
they asked me to make biscuits
and how I said yes.


Sending a little love, m

  1. Oh, biscuits! I adore them when they are fresh out of the oven and slathered with butter and jam! You are such a wonderful mom! Such a lovely way to say ‘I love you’ to your family! xx

  2. With a workaholic husband and a 25 years old son… I know that they don´t pay attention to these moments that you describe, but I need this type of moment to nurture my soul. Only for ME, MYSELF and I try to slow down and enjoy every second of it.
    thank you Michelle! :-)

    1. how terrific that you know you need this for yourself…so good that you try to slow down and enjoy all of it. it’s no easy thing to do.
      I’ve smiled reading your comment, knowing how in tune you are. good on you, Nancy. xo

  3. Thank you for this today. We have a school holiday this week, so three pairs of hands out of their normal routine. I will try to say yes instead of a panicky no. Thanks Michelle! Xo
