Who I am- I am the helper
Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. KJV
What I do-What I've been up to lately
When he is building hay storage, it's my job to hold the boards, find the dropped nails, hold the ladder....
When he is at the livestock auction, it's my job to make sure he doesn't bid too high on rabbits.
When he is bored, it's my job to break the lawnmower so he'll have something to fix.
When he is out of clean clothes, it's my job to remind him to fix the leaning clothesline posts.
When he pours concrete in the post holes, it's my job to (accidentally!) step in one before it's set up.
When he wants to work on a hot rod with his sons, it's my job to go shopping and leave them alone.
When he pulls all of last year's moldy hay out, it's my job to spread it in the garden.
When he takes his eyes off the road and crashes us on the motorcycle, it's my job to forgive him.
When he cleans the bugs out of the light fixtures, it's my job to thank him-profusely.
When his hair is looking a little too scraggly for church, it's my job to cut it.
When he gets a really good deal on a rabbit hutch, it's my job to help him carry it and set it up.
When he offers to make me a hanging strawberry planter, it's my job to take him up on it! and plant the berries.
As you can see, we've had a lot to do. But DH has returned to work so I'm back to being a different kind of helper, the one who takes care of everyday, home front stuff.
Busy days are never over. We're in a countdown to DS#1's graduation from Nuclear Power School training in South Carolina and DS#2's wedding in July. But blogging will continue (I need this therapy!)
