Behold how good and pleasant it is.....

"If you sit down at set of sun And count the acts that you have done,
And counting find One, self-denying deed, One word That eased the heart of him who heard One glance most kind That fell like sunshine Where it went-
Then you may count that day well spent.
But if, through all the livelong day, You've Cheered no heart, by yea or nay- If, through it all, You've nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one's face- No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost-
Then count that day at worse than lost. "~Author unknown
For at least two hours Cooper stood holding his bike up for him a bike that was way too big for him but the words came.
Words flowing of encouragement,
"you can do this Cullen".
Cullen believing him and to my surprise pedaling to the words of his brother. Not looking back, just listening to his brothers reassurance and pedaling...
Over and over, one brother holding the other brother, trusting that his brother wouldn't let go.
Cooper running to him when he couldn't stop and helping him up
and then holding again and starting over,until he went further and cheers could be heard through my open windows. Cheers from brothers and from sisters..The chores would have to wait. I went out to the porch and watched, laughed, and lost myself in cheering.

Every-night at supper we sing:
Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity.
and in Hebrew:
Henei ma tov umanaim Shevet achim gam yachad Henei ma tov umanaim Shevet achim gam yachad

I'm thankful that my children dwell in is a very pleasant thing...
