My mom came to stay with us for eight days to help when Kapaun was born. I know it is not easy for her, but she continues to give, give, give. I always tell her that her presence is enough for me. Both John and I love having her in our home. The kids love having her in our home. She knows exactly how to help and what to do when a new baby is brought home. She knows how to comfort a fatigued mother even though she is fatigued. She knows how to give hope to the weary even though she is weary. She has the amazing capacity to get out of herself to help others.
