potw: the helping hand

Apr 11, 2011

I couldn’t live my life and do the things I do without the help of my friends. On any given day, we are helping each other. Sharing meals, giving rides, teaching skills, cleaning kitchens, folding laundry, watching children, and giving hugs. I am so grateful for the help I am given and love to give help to others as well. Our poem this week highlights the good karma that goes round ‘n round.

The Helping Hand – author unknown

If when climbing up life’s ladder
You can reach a hand below,
Just to help the other fellow
Up another rung, or so,
It may be that in the future,
When you’re growing weary, too,
You’ll be glad to find there’s someone
Who will lend a hand to you.

Think of those words with your family in mind. If each of us in a family lived by these words, our lives would run much more smoothly. I’m hoping that as we recite it this week, the level of helpfulness will increase as well.
