“This is my dad, mowing my mom’s lawn. They’ve been divorced 28 years. My mom has bad knees, and my stepdad works out of town. When my younger siblings questioned, “Why is your dad mowing mom’s lawn?”
I told them “Because, She needed help, and he knew she couldn’t get out here to do it, so he did” This is co-parenting.
This illustrates how lucky I am to have four parents who respect one another and understand that, in the end, the only thing that matters is teaching your kids—even those who are 32 years old—how to treat people and how to love your family, regardless of how it was put together.
Edit: My dad is humbled at how many people have seen this. He wants everyone to know “I’m no saint”, He just wants to show others that you don’t need to act like an angelic pastor on Lent, but that we should all choose kindness whenever we can.”
