|Rubbing the mamma's head
was done and the butter was come, the
did lift all the little lumps of butter out of the churn. Then she did pat them together in a big lump, and this she put away in the butterbox in the
. When she went to lay herself down to rest on the bed, she did call me to rub her head. I like to rub the mamma's head for it does help the worry lines to go away. Often I rub her head, for it is often she does have
to have it so. And I do think it is very nice to help people have what they do have longings for.
