The generosity and care that have been heaped upon our household through the last few months have been astounding. The photo is just a small portion of it. Friends and family alike, near and far have been so giving, loving and kind I'm not quite sure what to say. It is humbling.
Many have told us that life changes completely with a baby, and I can see now that one of the biggest things to fall will be our sense of independence.
Confession... I love to be a helper. But I hate to ask for help. Which is very inefficient. In a weird way, it is selfish. And it slows the development of relationships.
Am I the only one that considers being asked for help or an opinion on something is a huge compliment? Does that just come from being the teacher's pet in school?
I'm not talking about constant "needy" pestering, but real genuine requests for help or collaboration.
We are one month away from Joshua's due date. And I can't thank you enough for loving us through the process.
