you of the little worries of business
or the compliment the "boss" paid
him. If you never again could see
him greet the children with that
rough tenderness that brings a lump
into your throat.
l And then ask yourself what you
would do if the children should be
taken from you and you would never
see them again? Never have them
come to you with a bruised knee or
"a hurt finger, beseeching you to heal
the hurt with a kiss?
v Never be able to listen again to
their "God bless mamma" prayers or
tuck them into their little beds, or
kiss their foreheads damp from play?
And I think, if you will do this hon
estly, your eyes that look back at
you from the mirror will accuse you
of a very great selfishness that you
have not appreciated what a happy
woman you are, and I think yoi will
be glad that you searched your heart
and found, before it is too late, that
you would be utterly miserable with
out the husband who doesn't live on
the same plane with you or the chil
dren who are too young to sym
pathize. j. Stop imagining yourself misunder
stood and try to adjust yourself to
those about you. Try to find their
pweetness and ,their dearness to
which you have heretofore shut your
eyes; and when you have made your
self one with the three who love you,
then try to make yourself harmonize
with life by studying the lives of
others, by discovering how very
much real misery there is in the
world that is borne bravely while you
have whimpered about fancied mis
ery. And when you have made yourself
harmonize you will not suffer from
soul-hunger and you will not be mis
understood. But I do think you will
often smile whimsically at the
thought that you ever wrote such a
Roman stripe materials are smart
est when blue and green predominate.
