She's worried, I think. The kids have to start school and there just aren't enough shoes to go around. The shirts have buttons missing, but they can move them around and tuck in , so you won't be able to tell. The jeans were worn for play a few times, so patches are on both knees, but they will last all year, as long as no one gets too tall. At least, the garden is plentiful and the cows are happy, so there will be fresh lunches made everyday.
He knows she worries, but all of the kids are healthy and that counts for a lot. He will do without so they have whatever they need. He has laugh lines around the corners of his soft blue eyes because that's just his way...always a smile, a kind word and a hand out to help others.
Whatever the day brings, good or bad, they will stand together, her hand in his and know in their hearts "This Is My Love".
