Marmee-isms ~#20~ Back to Shouldering Our Burdens

"Oh dear, how hard it does seem to take up our packs & go on," sighed Meg, the morning after the party; for, now the holidays were over, the week of merry-making did not fit her for going on with the task she never liked.

"I wish it was Christmas or New Year all the time; wouldn't it be fun?" answered Jo, yawning dismally.

"We shouldn't enjoy ourselves half so much as we do now. But it does seem nice to have little suppers & bouquets, & go to parties, & drive home, & read & rest, & not work. It's like other people, you know, & I always envy girls who do such things; I'm so fond of luxury," said Meg, trying to decide which of two gowns was the least shabby.

"Well, we can't have it, so don't let us grumble, but shoulder our bundles & trudge along as cheerfully as Marmee does."

Little Women ~ Ch. 4

  1. Oh how I love your quotes from Little Woman. It really brings some perspective to everyday life. I too sometimes wish Christmas could go on forever; perhaps it will when the Savior comes again.

  2. Love it! And I love the music on your blog too....so soothing....
