My Dad Keeps Mowing My Mom’s Lawn Even Though They’ve Been Divorced for 28 Years

This is my dad who is mowing my mom’s lawn. They’ve actually separated for 28 years.

My mom experiences bad knees, and my stepdad works out of town. When my younger siblings asked me that, “Why is your dad mowing mom’s lawn?” I told them, “Because, she needed help, and he knew she couldn’t get out here to do it, so he did.”

This is co-parenting.

I’m always grateful for the thing that I have four parents who respect each other. And know that at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is showing your children (even ones that are 32 years old) how to treat people and how to love your family, regardless of how it came together.

My dad stays with me in Texas on vacation. He doesn’t even live here where my mom lives.

And, my dad not only did something selflessly for her, he also did it for her while he was on his VACATION. He wants everyone to know, “I’m no saint.” We don’t need to force ourselves to act like an angelic pastor on Lent, but that we should all choose kindness whenever we can.

My dad told me that he didn’t do this for the recognition as a good person or a good ex-husband.

He said my mom and he decided when they were going through their divorce they would both choose to be adults and treat each other with respect and compassion. It’s because no matter how their bond ended, they both loved each other very much at one point, and that that love — counts for something. That if they wanted to raise their children to be good, kind people, they needed to be good kind people. This is always true. Our behavior and awareness about life is learnt from people we communicate every day and in relation with. Dad and mom are the first to mention here.

I’m very lucky to have such amazing parents.

I always know that my moms and dads would do anything they could for each other, because we’re family. I’m very lucky to have such amazing parents.
