Our Folded Hands

Promise of a new Day

…the healthy, the strong individual, is the one who asks for help when he needs it whether he has an abscess on his knee or in his soul. —Rona Barrett—

It is not meant that we should shoulder our problems alone. We are in the company of others by design, and the growth that each of us needs to experience is tied

closely to both the sufferings and the celebrations that come to us all.
We have the capacity to nurture and guide another’s wavering steps. But the invitation to help must be extended. Perhaps we need reminding that each of us carries within us the remedy for another’s ills. Likewise, someone among us awaits our call for help. We are accompanying one another on this journey because together we can smooth away the rough spots that would cause us to stumble if we were traveling alone.
Many calls for help will be made today, and some of us will be ready to respond. All of us need to remember that one of our greatest gifts is offering comfort to our stumbling friends.
Others need to help me—just as much as I need their help.
