Be Grateful

I have A LOT on my mind tonight, but I won’t bore you with everything. I’ll bore you with just a little bit. 🙂  I found out someone I know had to go to a food bank for food. I don’t know. It made me feel some kind of way which I can’t describe. I checked on the person a few times, but didn’t get a response via text or voicemail. I finally got through to the person today. I simply asked, “what do you need?” The request was minimal and I had to press for it.

While I think it’s noble for a person to do whatever they can to survive on their own, I’m not comfortable with a person going to great lengths to hide their need. Is that pride?  The foolish kind? The thought that was attached to the feeling I described earlier was, as long as this person knows me, they shouldn’t have to go to a food bank. My husband and I just helped a person yesterday that we don’t know from Adam, but a person that we know very well had to go to a food bank.

What’s my point?  I don’t really know. Hmmmm, perhaps it is important to help those in need near and far if you can. If you start thinking about someone all of sudden, check on them to make sure they are okay. Ask open ended questions so they will actually have to say more than “yes” or “no”. And thank the Lord for everything you have. There’s always someone that’s worse off than you. Be grateful! I’m not exempt. I’m  . . .

Just blogging it out . . .Oh and Happy Monday Night!! 😀
