A Mother's Radiance

Something beautiful happens when a woman truly embraces motherhood. Her focus shifts from herself to her children and family. There is no time for vanity and selfishness. Vanity is turned to virtue, self to selfless. This sacrifice of a mother has rewards in character and heart. Although the beauty of her youth may fade, the beauty of her virtue will illuminate her. And that, my dear friends, is the beauty that will last.

Scones: Like a Muffin with Class

Since scones have become the favorite food of this food-fickle female, I thought I'd share my favorite recipe. I have a tendency to over do things until I've killed them, whether it's eating a particular thing, wearing something again and again, or doing an activity until it's no fun at all, but I'm being careful with these because I like them too much for that. (But just so you know, I know not whether they are truely proper or Scottish.)
