HOMESTEAD : Many Hands Make Light Work

My Grandfather often said: "Many hands make light work." (Though, he said it in German.) Then my Dad said it. (Sometimes in German, usually in English.) Now I'm saying it, too. (Only in English. I can't remember it in German.) One goal this year is to admit when I can't do something on my own, to gracefully accept help. So, last weekend, I gathered a group of friends and we tackled a corner of the barn, organizing and cleaning. Then celebrated with a fire, good food, and way too much wine.
