Last week, I had to find a way to provide a family member with all the basic essentials of life. She had nothing but a bed, a couch and a few personal belongings. It is a very long story that I will not tell except to say that her situation is of no fault of her own and I would not wish it upon anyone. If I had to live like her, I probably wouldn’t choose to live on this earth. Helping her was a necessity. It reminded me of how blessed I am to have a roof over my head and food to eat. It reminded me of others who are in similar situations of desperation as my family member. It reminded me of Cheryl, a fellow blogger who just needs a job to turn things around. Sounds easy, but it isn’t.
I know I have stood on this soap box a few times already, but it’s my soap box. You can simply turn the page if you wish…
We are not all given the same opportunities.
We are not all blessed with families that are willing or able to help us.
We are not all blessed with healthy bodies or healthy minds.
We are not all blessed with minimal disasters that fall upon us.
We are not all fortunate to succeed from our hard work. Some work harder than us and get half as far.
We are not all able to work.
Some of us struggle every day just to eat, pay a bill, keep our sanity or find even one small fragment of hope to carry on.
I am asking that you really think about how you will be inconvenienced if you were to give a small amount to someone who is at risk of losing their home. If I can leave myself short to reach out to another, then believe me…so can you.
When you truly give, you look into your heart, not your bank book.
I hope you will look into your heart to help my fellow blogger and friend.
