This autumn my family invited friends to join us in gathering other friends' abundance of fruit. My children helped harvest, sort, and wash fruits. While three-year-old Liam sorted supplies, seven-year-old Hannah helped cut fruits and stir pots of sauces as we canned plum jam, crock pot applesauce, and tomato sauce. Thanks to my daughter's helpfulness, we shared humor, sweat, and learning while preparing edibles for our family. Her gift is a gift for us all.
