A Helping Hand

“If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you’ll end up not doing nothing for nobody.” ~ Malcom Bane

Hello dear friends–  Helpful people. I’ll bet you know a few of them.  When we lived in Spain I had a tennis playing buddy, Tenti,  who lived downstairs in our apartment block.  One day as we were batting balls back and forth, I told her I had to to quit a bit early–needed to do a bunch of ironing to be ready for a trip the next day.

As I set up my ironing board and looked over my waiting rumpled pile of clothes, the doorbell ran.  It was Tenti, iron and ironing board in hand, offering to help.   What a happy surprise– we ironed and talked through the afternoon…

So I’m thinking if that little serendipitous  bit of help gave me such joy, I should slow down, stop rushing by people who could use some unexpected help, be more intentional about giving a helping hand.  God help me…

thanks to the tumbler–Simply Good Stuff  for the snowman picture.
