Life at ease

Two girls stand in the warmth of the afternoon sunlight. The older sister, who is wearing a rosary, gazes lovingly at her sibling in the stroller. Each girl comfortably holds a chicken, the younger of the two girls has her chicken nestled on her hip … just like she will as a mother holding her infant.
