Trying to Help
I think that we are always in the right place at the right time when we stubble upon someone who needs our help.
I was walking today, and I saw a man trying to get into the doorway of his home. He could not lift up his foot to enter the doorway. My initial reaction is to always help, so I asked him if he needed help. He said that he had just come back from the doctor’s office and they told him, that although it was severely bruised, his left ankle was only sprained. I told him I was strong, and it was okay to to lean on me, and I would help him into his house. He did, and I helped him up the step. I then asked if he needed more assistance, and he told me someone was coming over to help him.
This was the second time this year that I offered assistance to someone I did not know who was in need, and it makes me feel so good knowing that I can help.
This time of year, especially around the holidays, it is a good time to take inventory of what you have.
Take a good look at what you have that is special, and then pay it forward. If it is a good strong arm like mine, find someone who may need to lean on you.
There are different ways to help people. Some may need some physical help when they are mending. Other people may just need someone to talk to.
When you lend a hand to someone in need, you get it back in many ways.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
