In this book she relays the thoughts of a friend:
"These are the never years. Never enough money, never enough time, never enough sleep- but always enough love. The sweetest kiss of a baby; the toothpaste flavored kiss of a child on his way to school, the sleepy kiss of a husband who is just as tired as you.
These are the busy years, the wonderful, hectic, impossible years. Soon the children will be grown and I'll have plenty of time to organize my house, to sew and cultivate outside interests. I wonder if is will be as wonderful as I sometimes dream it will? Or am I in the middle of the wonderful years...right now?"
To all those finding joy in the messes today!
