30 Days of Thanks: Day 15--A Story in Photos

"May you live all the days of your life."
--Jonathan Swift

Jack decides to rake the bajillions of leaves in the backyard.

Not to be outdone, Mo joins in.

They work very hard, and Mommy is so very proud of their initiative and teamwork.
She also enjoys a little solitary time in the kitchen to try out
some new holiday recipes.

While Mo helps Jack load a pile of leaves onto his rake,
she busts him in the mouth with the end of her rake. He cries, she cries,
and both run in the house. Mommy's alone time comes to a heartbreaking end.

Ten minutes, an ice pack, an apology and two hugs later,
they head back out and celebrate a job well done.

I don't know how to phrase it, but today, I am thankful for all of that.
