This week was one of the most labor intensive for the ongoing saga of finishing the landscape around our home. Forty-five yards of cement needed to be poured to finish off the side of our house. The immense driveway took my husband and I countless hours throughout the past weeks to prep the space, but I knew I wouldn’t have the physical strength to be of much help with the actual pours. This is where family is such an amazing blessing.
My husband’s brothers, a brother-in-law, and my father descended on our home in a two day blitz that helped us conquer five truck loads of cement. A feat my husband and I couldn’t have accomplished on our own. Even my sisters came! Yeah, they weren’t any physical help either, but I loved having them for moral support. Just another example of why you should take extra care of your siblings when growing up. Beyond the free labor they provide, they can be a priceless support system that will always be there for you.
