Another unexpected blessing of this pregnancy has been seeing these two blossom in their ability to work and work together. I finally realized one day that some of the things I couldn’t do, these two boys could.
So while I sat on my walker, these two followed my instructions and learned how to plant peas. (And clean the floor, weed the strawberries, harvest the apple pears, potatoes, zucchini and cucumbers, haul water, empty and fill the dishwasher, bring in the garbage and recycle bins, and anything else that Mommy needed their help doing.)
First they weeded every bucket Daddy had lined up for me, then they planted and watered the whole thing!
And as I sat back and watched, I marveled that I never would have asked them to do this if I had been well. And I never would have found out what a wonderful job they could do.
Or how much they would enjoy doing it together.
Thank you, boys! I couldn’t have done this without you, your sunny smiles and your eagerness to help.
