something to consider…

Humans cannot hope to survive without help.

Humility is simple, yet strong and powerful; a catalyst, if you will.

When we ask for help, we acknowledge that we are the same as everyone else… flawed and with needs… which binds us to one another.

When we accept help with humility, we are actually acknowledging the value of what someone has to offer; their special worth and ability to assist.

This is a way for us to honor every person as worthy, as special and with gifts that may be shared.

It does not matter which side of the coin you are on, either offering the help, or receiving it… doing it with grace and loving-kindness is the key. =)


My thoughts are all over the place today, as often happens when family strife tries to weigh my heart down. I will be back later, or in the morning with some little bits of wisdom, a photo or two and something more profound. =) Have a lovely day…

    Hope the strife gets resolved.
    It’s good to remember what being human is, from time to time…

    Is it too late to run away and become an astronaut ?! Might have to go all th sway to Russia to find a rocket, but may be worth it… ! =)

    Funny how it is never the obvious; The Professor gives me less grief than my side of the family does… maybe for christmas this year I can give out restraining orders… the gift that keeps on giving !!!!!!! BWAHAHA ! (maniacal laugh induced by lack of caffeine in my bloodstream !)
