I am probably the luckiest person in the world. I have the most wonderful support system in the world. Yes my parents are only an hour away and they are wonderful, but right here on the island I have some of the best friends you could ask for.
My yard was bad. The back yard was capable of swallowing Bear and keeping him there hidden very well. The front was getting rather shaggy. I had every intention of getting out there and mowing it last week, and I got the mower out and I couldn't start it. So I put it away. That night my friend Mama Geph called and offered to come over and mow. Now this is where I must say that I have a VERY hard time asking for help. I can do it myself and that is it. Well I have gotten to the point where I can't do it myself. I need help. I just had a very hard time asking for it. And she was persistant. So on Saturday her and her entire family came over and her wonderful husband worked for 3 very hot hours in my yard. It looks wonderful now and I cannot describe the weight that has been lifted from my shoulders. I got to hang out with her and her kids and relax and pick weeds. I just cannot describe how grateful I am that they gave up their Saturday afternoon to come and help me.
And then there is D and H. Their husbands have watched Bear countless times so that us girls can go out and have fun. I know that I could call them in the middle of the night with any problem under the sun and they would be there for me. These 3 women have been such good teachers to me. I met them all about the same time that I became a mommy and I have learned so much from all of them. How to be a mommy and a wife just by watching them. I know that I will keep in touch with them for the rest of my life. I am going to miss them like crazy when I move and I don't know how I am going to handle that, but I will cross that bridge when I get to it. Probably with a lot of tears(and kicking and screaming) but it is a bridge I have to cross.
Thank you to my friends. Thank you for making the last 8 months do-able and fun. I hope that someday I can be as supportive as you have been to me.
