Lily in the Morning

She is something else in the morning.

Her hair is as wild and unpredictable as her mood.

*On another note, I am slowly reading through a series of books I received a few years back, by Dorcas Smucker. They're just short stories about life (raising 6 kids and living on a farm!) by they are so therapeutic for me. Her perspective of having raised 6 (and yet remembering the REALLY difficult days) makes me remember that, as hard as some days are, this time is short with little kids.

I loved how she put it in one story, reminiscing about a few weeks one summer where only her two youngest children were at home: "The fewer kids I have, the better of a mother I am. Imagine how good I'd be if I had NO kids!" I loved that.
