Ode to my Sister-in-Law

Dear Tessha, oh how I love thee! Let me count the ways!

1. I love the way you give me super good foot massages with lotion and paint my toenails.

2. I love the way that you do our dishes, which I do feel guilty about, but my belly is too big to reach the sink and we have no dishwasher.

3. I love the way you play legos with Preston.

4. I love the way you get up with Preston in the morning and get him his breakfast so that I can have a few extra moments of sleep, since most likely I didn't get any.

5. I love the way you have vacuumed our house almost every day since you have been here.

6. I love the way you have cleaned our toilet and our tub, and....

7. Wait. I just want to say I don't love the way that you probably think we are gross and messy. Normally we aren't.

8. I love the way you listen to me complain and understand what I've been going through.

9. I love that you gave up your own time and energy to come help me.

10. I

Thank you Tessha! You have done what I have not been close enough to do! Thank you Sandy and Dan for raising such a wonderful daughter!

Isn't Tessha just special? We are glad that she has so much help to you and Preston! Soon you will have a new bundle of joy in this Earth! Remember that the command to "Multiply and relenish the World is still in force." I am sure that "This too shall pass!"

I'm so glad you were able to get the help that you so desperately needed. What a wonderful sister Will has! Give her my appreciation as well. :)
