Day 322

Today a bunch of Adams friends from church came by to offer us some service. Since moving in our house and having Abe, we have been so time poor, Abe is generally crying unless being held, so I basically feel like I can get nothing done between caring for my boys, helping out with our business and trying to maintain the house work (which is NEVER maintained:/) – Adam has been desperately slugging his guts and working so hard to pay our bills that we have not had time (or the money just yet) to do anything with our landscaping. Needless to say the front was looking a little wild!

10 men + 2 helpful little boys (that I can remember off hand) came and busted their butts for a couple of hours. They got rid of two loads of building rubbish that had been left onsite, cleared and moved more than a ute full of rocks, weeded, wiper-snipped, all while laughing and enjoying the time spent helping us out. Reflecting on it later this afternoon, I couldn’t help feeling a little overwhelmed with gratitude for their love for us, their compassion showed for our little Ammon & family and willingness to help us out at this time. (Yep a little teary again now just thinking about it).

I was chatting to one of Adams friends after his wifes baby shower today (he as one who had come to help us out) and he mentioned that Frank (their Elders Quorum leader) had “given a moving speech” on Sunday,  as he put it, to rally them together to come by today and help us out. He said that Frank had gotten a little teary when he broke the news about Ammons fall, and said he felt compelled and passionate about giving service to us at this time. Jay then mentioned it was quite emotional and there was hardly a dry eye in the room (and quote “I might have even shed a tear or two”.  (Bunch of softies!) They were obviously moved, because usually when Adam goes along to a service project, he comes home and says there was only 2 or 3 people there.

I feel so blessed, Heavenly Father really knows our needs… the yard had been causing me quite a bit of stress, and through these wonderful men, he was able to prompt them to serve my little family and help us with something we needed, that we could not do ourselves.

(Later in the day, Ammon helping poppa drill some holes to fix his bathroom stool:))
