I love the work of Robert Frost! This short excerpt from The Master Speed encouraged me so much. To be a wife or husband and making an oath to do so, means to stay side by side while traveling through life together. Frost is explaining that its easier for two birds to fly side by side than just one, and it is easier to row with two people in a boat than just one. To be a help mate is to be willing. Are you in agreement with your spouse? Are you willing to be a help mate? I am going to take this week to try and be the wife, the help that my husband needs… and not just do things for him, but find joy in our life together!
