Once upon a time, in a tiny country church, a handsome man married a beautiful woman. The handsome man and the beautiful woman had three lovely daughters and a charming son. They were a healthy, loving family and could have lived happily ever after in their own little house, in their own little world.
But they chose to do more.
You see, the woman had a sister. This sister was sturdy and strong and married to a jolly, gregarious man. The sister and husband had two shy daughters and a hearty son. When their children were very young, the jolly man started to stumble when he walked. His vision blurred. His limbs felt numb and tingly. So he went to the doctor and was told he had multiple sclerosis. Very soon, the jolly man couldn’t walk or work. He was in a wheelchair. And his family nearly lost its bearings.
That’s when the other family chose to do more.
The handsome man and the beautiful woman, their three lovely daughters and charming son stepped in, and in innumerable ways, gave back to the strong sister and her jolly husband, their nieces, and nephews much of what multiple sclerosis had snatched away.
The beautiful woman babysat when her sister went back to work.
The handsome man climbed up on a roof with his children, his nieces and nephew so they could see the view.
