Together

We all know it's easier to carry a load with someone else...and I don't mean a heavy bag. So why is it so hard to allow ourselves the decadence of vulnerability- the kind it takes to ask for help? The truth is that when we do or when we pause long enough from our "to-do" list to see that a friend needs our support, the beauty of the shared moments or even sadness or burdens is that much more enjoyed...together.

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor:   If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up... Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Ecclesiastical 4:9-10, 12
