"I didn't know this was about having fun," Mama said soberly. "It's about taking care of Grandma. A life of service isn't about us and what we want to do. It's about doing what we know we should do for others."

Though Grandma Myrtle has multiple sclerosis and cannot walk, she enjoys many of the same things most grandmas do: birds and pets, the outdoors, letters in the mail, snowmen, shopping trips, and spending time with her grandchildren. Through surgeries and sickness and long days of sitting on her couch, Grandma strives to be cheerful and grateful.

The Yoder children serve as Grandma Myrtle's helpers. Through the ups and downs of daily life, caregiving, and pushing Grandma's wheelchair, they learn that true fulfillment comes from willingly offering their hands and feet to someone in need.
