It is said that “It’s not what you have, but WHO you have in your life that counts the most.”
Whilst on some level I agree whole heartedly with that statement, I would like to take it one step further and say that ‘It’s not only WHO you have in your life, but also who they have in their lives, that will count the most in yours’.
I have watched this in play over and over and over again – people sitting around a table chatting about this and that and suddenly a single comment is made and everybody interacts with everybody else in terms of somebody who knows somebody who can assist. It’s wonderful to watch this when it happens.
You see most people instinctively want to help others and sometimes this is the only way that they know how.
So I consider myself truly blessed, because I know a great many people, who know a great many people, and when I need help and assistance all I have to do is ask!
Never be afraid to ask for help! We are not alone in this world. We are not an island. Whilst it is our responsibility to “serve”, it is also our gift to receive.
Receive the gift with grace and then ‘pay it forward.’
