This Week...It Took a Village
We had our share of cold weather this week including a night with near-freezing temperatures. What made it especially cold during the day was the overcast skies and drizzling rain.
It takes a village to raise a child. Find a village. Encourage one another & open your village to others. Unknown
My sister-in-law (who is a saint) ended up caring for a newborn on Monday. The mother has no family with 2 toddlers under 3 who have colds and fever.
She was concerned about exposing her newborn son to this. The baby was just under a week old. My sister-in-law was best friends with the young girl’s mother (who passed away a few years ago.)
So when they say it takes a village...they’re not kidding!
Helping others isn't a chore; it is one of the greatest gifts there is. Liya Kebede
We took dinner over one night and to give my sister-in-law a break, Larry fed the baby and held him all night. Babies love Larry.
Other members of our family have come over to give my sister-in-law a break and others are waiting their turn to help out until the baby goes back to mama.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. Audrey Hepburn
This is what it’s all about. If you can help...you do.
Have a glorious weekend!
