A Small Abundance

I remember their pleasure in all the items of their small abundance…

“Dick and Aunt Sarah Jane’s two-room house at the edge of the woods, down the hill from the barns, was a part of the Home Place, but it was also a place unto itself, with its own garden and henhouse and woodpile…She kept house and cared for a small flock of chickens and foraged in the fields and sewed and mended and read her Bible.  In the mornings and the evenings and in odd times spared from the farmwork, Dick kept their house supplied with water and milk, meat, and firewood.  I remember their pleasure in all the items of their small abundance…
