Some serious new-mama-love

I have a very dear friend who visited me yesterday.  She's a mother of 9.  She's been around the block a few times.  And then some.

She came with her 6 youngest children (who entertained my children) and another friend for the purpose of getting some garden planting done for me.  They planted my cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, onions and tomatoes-- work which would have taken me many days and a lot of back-pain misery to get done in my present state.  It was wonderful.  

I somehow failed to take pictures (doh!  What is wrong with me???) of all that, so I don't have anything to show you, but I keep looking out at my garden and sighing with happiness.  It's just wonderful.

I do have this to show you, however.  Besides all that work, and bringing lunch and supper for us all, she brought one of the most perfect baby gifts I have ever seen.


I was stunned at the thoughtful perfection.

Diapers and chocolate?  Amazing.
