Thankful for inter-dependence

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 winter danceall 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.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.
