Help Carry The Load

Looks can be deceiving. Often times in our rush through the day we may glance someone’s direction, make a quick judgement that they look alright and then keep moving along.

How many times in a day do we say or hear the phrase “how are you doing?”

How many times do we truly mean it?

Would we know if someone actually is not doing well?

If we do sense that they are not doing alright will we stop, listen and offer some assistance, comfort or encouragement?

Everyone can use a hand from time to time. Everyone also includes you and me.

We try to be strong. We appear to be strong.

Often times we have to be strong but that doesn’t mean it would be nice to have some help carrying the load from time to time.

If we know how it feels to carry that heavy load that is all the more reason to be in tune with the load that others may be carrying. Stop, lean in and listen.

Maybe today you can help to lighten somebody else’s load. Helping them will actually help to lighten any load you may be carrying as well.

Be aware of those moments and opportunities.

I’m cheering for you.
