A few weeks ago, our area was hit by a snow and ice storm. My snow shoveling days are long over, and so I asked the children of some friends if I could hire them to clear our driveway.
These sweet children came over and worked on the driveway far longer than they should have been outside in the bitter cold. To my chagrin, I didn't realize how long they had been out there chipping away at the ice. When I looked out, another "child" had joined them.
The mother, bundled up with a hood over her head, had come to check on her children and started to work on the driveway as well. I couldn't help but think, as I have so often in the past, what a remarkable family this is. The parents have not only taught their children how to work, they SHOW them how to work.
Joy for today: watching the Kubie family in action.
