Some Thursdays, figuring out a “thankful” takes a good bit of digging. This one is easy!
Needing help…generally, I put dependence up there with getting dental work done. But we all have times we need to lean on others. I think our ability to receive love, support, and compassion is a great measure of how healthy we are. None of us were meant to live in a vacuum.
So I needed to muster up the courage to ask for help this week, and I was offered great kindness and compassion. I’m beyond grateful for that gift, and sometimes simple words can be a great treasure.
I’m also reminded that we tend to think of one person giving, the other receiving. In any truly open and honest exchange, both give; both receive.
i meant to tell you i loved this post. it takes such huge courage to ask for help. it shouldn’t, but man it does! I can relate to this so much! ((((hugs))))
Thanks, Carrie. I appreciate it!
