 Love builds

Sometimes love means hoping so much for the most independence for a sweet  little boy that he can possibly have.

Sometimes love sees a bright possibility - and follows through to make it happen.

At times that means such love  will motivate one to spend a day digging 12 deep holes, encountering tough dirt and rocks. An aching back and many hours...

It means using Saturdays - which could have been spent doing whatever he wanted to do, to work hard. Calculating angles, measuring, cutting, drilling, tasking.

Hours, and strength, and ingenuity.

He loves his little boy.

He gives me  insight into the way Jesus loves.

His little boy loves being able to go outside by himself with his walker now.
