Give it some thought (I did)



When you are exasperated by interruptions, try to remember that their very frequency may indicate the value of your life. Only people who are full of help and strength are burdened by other persons' needs. The interruptions which we chafe at are the credentials of our indispensability. The greatest condemnation that anybody could incur - and it is a danger to guard against - is to be so independent, so unhelpful, that nobody ever interrupts us, and we are left comfortably alone.

Wow. 

I've thought so much about all the help we've received from others over the past few months.  So many have provided relief.  And the support just keeps coming.  Honestly, it has shown me how little I give to others.  Sometimes we get to see ourselves as we really are.  For me, it's not that pretty of a picture.  Here's hoping I can change what I've seen in myself.
