Radical Generosity | My parents .

Yesterday I read an article about the cost of radical generosity and these words stood out to me-- "you can't keep up with the Joneses when you are committed to radical generosity." The first people that came to my mind were my parents. Maybe it's because they just spent two entire weeks giving and giving to my family but most probably it's because this is the pattern I've seen them live out all of my life. And not just in terms of finances but their time and energies too. 


The other night I snapped a few photographs of my parents with my children. But I wanted a few of just them too. I asked my mom to look at my dad and I loved how this one turned out. Anyone who knows my parents then knows that the sun rises and sets on my dad in my mom's eyes.  Anyone who knows my dad knows that he's the loyalest of New York Yankee's fans. (wink) And, goodness, they need those fans right about now. (double wink) 

My boys are up to their necks in dirt and jumping off piles of stacked cinder blocks, dangerously close to breaking an arm or a leg, of that I am sure. Wren is napping and Cal-girl is panting beside me as I type and sway on the glider in our back yard. Looking around me and seeing all of the changes that have been made over the last couple of weeks, I am incredibly grateful for my parents and for all of the help they have given to us in making our new house a place where we feel at home. 

I love you mom and dad. And I love the way you love people.
