Posing for the soap ad allowed her hands to be warm for a bit,
and paid her a few dimes for bread for her children. Luck was hers today.

  1. Ooh, this one is depressing-creative, yes, but still sad :(

  2. Susan..luck was hers...surviving is a good and noble thing
    no one promises easy...
    glad you stopped to read what people see

  3. Good to see you, Suz! Love your take on the pic of the day. It's a sad one, but it has a beauty some of ours are lacking! Hope you have a great week!


  4. I think positive thoughts when I look at this art piece and your words ...I think things improved for her because of the soap ad and here she is out in the beautiful spring garden, smiling as she thinks of her well fed children.

  5. Wow--she looks way too young to have children...but in my take on the picture she was old enough to kill, so I guess yours makes sense too!
    Have a great week. Cheers.

  6. Great post, luck as always is perceived by heart of the "recipient"!

  7. ha ha John...I saw it as a positive
    ..but all feedback is's the words the way they're crafted..and perception mixed in...I only meant it as positive
    I come from a long line of survivors...maybe that's it...

  8. Warm hands ! I know that one- trying for it all winter- thanks!

  9. Your MMs always pack so much feeling. Impressive!

  10. We take our luck where we find it, I guess. Different take on this. Well done!

  11. Aww, what a good mama, and she keeps herself looking nice, too.

    This is a sweet one, Suz.

  12. Sad little story. Hope things got better.

  14. It was a bright day. She would soon be on a carriage to her Queensdom where her two little babies awaited her. But, first, the laundry must be done
