Helper of Men

See this lady:

Her name means "helper of men".  That she is.  Before we moved she lived one block from my house and stopped by unannounced often.  I loved it. 

She has held my hand this whole walk full of sadness. She lives up to her name.

She's the one that showed up early last week and sent me to bed because I was a bucket full of tears.

Today knowing the new meds are making me extremely sleepy she again popped it with everything we needed to make a milk free apple pie.  The boys loved it.  And well I always love it when she's around.

Then she made us go play in the beautiful sunshine while she was in her slippers.

I think she enjoyed the swings more then the rest of us.

Older women...teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.
~ Titus 2:3-5

1240.  A gift to have a friend like her.
1241.  A lady who loves to play with my boys.
