Last night, Josh came home and we ate dinner as a family. Then, he told the boys to get their shoes on and go to the backyard. We planted our garden, as a family. Actually, Josh and the boys planted the garden. I weeded and raked. We planted corn, pumpkins, beans, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, and raspberries. Can I just tell you that it was heaven on earth? I looked around at them and I counted my blessings, one by one. Do you know how I have yearned for this? I have hoped against hope that this would be my life someday. I hoped against hope that this would be my boys' life. They weren't exactly happy that they had to work for so hard for so long, but in the end, we were all thrilled with the outcome. We can't wait to watch these little plants grow!
