My husband often says to me… “You know…it’s okay to ask for help!” This usually comes after I am stretching to reach something really high off the ground and he in his 6′ 4″ frame is standing right there…or as I am grabbing something of questionable stability to stand on to reach something really high off the ground more like it. I often look at him and say “I don’t need help!”
Who am I kidding! I need help! Today I accepted it in 2 areas. One is getting take-out for dinner…and for a good cause benefiting the Sparta Education Foundation’s Food For Thought. The other is (finally) contacting someone to help me clean my house. I really need help! I just don’t have time to give it the attention it needs. With 2 jobs and being so sick and 3 kids and helping babysit 2 more and Bible Study and everything else…I just can’t do it all! And that’s okay! Today I am thankful for help…and not being too stubborn to ask for it!
Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me. Psalm 54:4
