Bodies that can dig huge holes like this...
Working well past sunset in order to get the water back on.
I am so very, very thankful for my children. I'm thankful to my husband for being willing to teach them skills when it really would have been easier to just do the job himself. I'm thankful to the Lord for putting it in our hearts to teach our children to work together as a team to serve their family.
Please don't misunderstand this post, there is plenty of fussing and complaining and laziness that goes on in our family. But when it really matters, my teenager boys can always be counted on to help with the job no matter how unpleasant just because the job needs to be done. And for that I'm very very thankful.
So next time someone says, "I bet those boys eat you out of house and home." I'm going to let them know just how thankful I am for these blessings from the Lord.
