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

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
there’s definitely something about homemade biscuits…language of love.
mmm, I can smell the biscuits and feel the love :)
that made me smile. I’d bake biscuits for you :)
Being the mom of 2 adult children, I can only say that this is SO very true.

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! :-)
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
Lovely poem and picture.
thank you. xo
a simple yes can carry much weight…
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
I know what it is to have those extra pairs of hands! always a balance between the yeses and no-s.
enjoy this holiday week with your littles, Jo!!!
