(painting done many months ago
inspired by a conversation with my husband)
do you ever have trouble reaching out
to others when you may need help?
may need to talk?
may need a hug?
or simply need to have someone by your side so you are not alone?
i know for me i struggle at times with asking for "help"....
always trying to be strong and doing it all on my own.
but as i have gotten older and a little wiser (i hope)....
and being married to someone who faced (what i would imagine)
THEE hardest thing imaginable....
i have learned a thing or two....
i have learned it IS okay to ask for help
i have learned that those who REALLY know us....
will just show up.
they will show up without us asking.
they will show up no matter what may be going on in their life.
they simply seem to know
"sometimes you just need to show up."
we have friends like that who i am forever grateful for.
who helped take care of things that i just
couldn't take care of this past week...
having to pick up and go back home for two funerals.
they "showed up" and just did those things that needed to get done.
who are you showing up for these days??
(and remember, sometimes
we need to know how to read between the
lines for those who will
never ask us to show up!)
one last thing......
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART
FOR ALL THE LOVE, SUPPORT, HUGS AND PRAYERS
EXTENDING TO ME AND MY FAMILY THIS PAST WEEK.
YOU ARE ALL TREASURES TO ME
AND I AM SO VERY THANKFUL.
