My heart has been filled with gratitude these past few days for these three daughters (and yes, I love my other two children equally as well:-)
My girls always joke about how I am always volunteering them to help anyone in need. They have done a great deal of free baby sitting, cleaning, baking cookies, banana or zucchini bread, and serving at parties over the years--which I always greatly appreciate.
And this past week they helped out in a time of need and their willingness to do so made me feel so grateful for them I wanted to cry.
I have a dear friend who was moving out of her house and into an apartment and needed help with the move. Kathryn and Michelle (the two on the left) came and helped load and unload trucks for about three hours in 105 degree heat with humidity.
I was so glad to have their help as I can't lift heavy things so they did all the heavy lifting for us.
Later in the evening I went back with Kristen (on the right) who was a trooper. We stayed until 11:30 at night and even though I was so tired by then I could barely move, even at 11:30 Kristen had enough energy to run between the apartment and the trucks (3 loads) unloading everything, plus helped clean.
It would have been a much more difficult day without them, so I appreciate their help.
But what I appreciate the most is they did it willingly, happily and without any complaining.
I am so thankful for them.
I love you all!
