It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.
Every single person is given the same 24 hours. It’s up to you on what you do within that time. Some days you have to focus on yourself so your cup can be full enough to pour out to someone in need. And sometimes you are ready to go and able to help. This is when you just help.
I know for me I usually jump in to help. But, when it comes to my needs, I am not always quick to ask for assistance. Those that are closest to me know when I am struggling and just know to ask. I usually say no, but once in a while I simply say…please.
It’s usually not a big thing that I need help with. But the little thing gives such a boost that I am able to keep going for so much longer after that. And then, occasionally, there are the big things. Surgeries happen. Tires shred. Just life. It’s amazing to me who steps up when you really need it.
I know people can disappoint and cause quite a bit of drama. But, in the end, great relationships are why we stay. Why we still dance. Why we have hope.
Who’s that someone that comes to mind that rescues you? I have a few, thank heavens. As you are thinking of this person or people I would encourage you to reach out and say thank you. Call, mail a card, send a text. Remind them that they are appreciated.
With inky fingers,
