We had a simple & quiet Sunday. Grant was sick again and so we had a lazy morning and afternoon full of crafts and some garden work {I cannot take credit for garden work…only enjoying the fruit of Aaron’s labor}. We had a delicious dinner at Grammy’s with Fifi and Uncle Drew and walked home late knowing we would get to sleep-in today. This month’s 10 on 10 had a prompt {A Full Harvest} that I loved. Here is how Rebekah explained the concept behind a full HARVEST: The idea that during the harvest we work relentlessly harvesting and celebrating the things we have been cultivating throughout the year. Now I don’t mean to get to deep on you here but I have in mind the idea of capturing the things around you that make your heart so full because of the work and toil and faith you have put in. What bounty are you most grateful for because you have committed to the deep, for the long haul work?

In my photos taken yesterday I noticed a theme: HANDS. We have worked hard in our marriage and to raise kids who love each other and God and to cultivate a happy family life with our extended families. I love all the HANDS that it takes to do that. Little hands that work together {brother and sister who are best friends}. The hands that love to make creative beauty in my home and all  around me. The little hands that love me even when I yell, that are growing too quick and will not make little Turkey crafts forever. My hands that love to create and love to be wrapped around warm drinks on cool days {in sickness and in health…in grief and celebration}. Hands that work and cultivate a small bounty in our tiny yard. The hands that have stayed faithful in marriage and that I have held tight {through hard fights or long nights with sick babies or tears of joy & of pain}.  My mom’s hands that have prepared so many meals and poured out love upon her kids and grand-kids for so many years. I am so thankful for our little family of helping HANDS…our harvest is FULL indeed.

And today I have such a full heart!

Thanks Rebekah.
