We get by with a little help

July 26, 2013


The Beatles also said it well: We get by with a little help from our friends.

John Donne said No man is an island.

And I’m fond of saying We’re all in this together.

Trying to go it alone is a hard road.

How would we get through our sorrows if we couldn’t lean on another?

And how much better is a joyful celebration when it’s shared?

Being there for one another in the best of times and the worst of times. Sharing sorrows and joys. It’s what life’s about.

How can you be there for someone today?

    I try to do that everyday. I just helped a friend who was in a bad way. I do believe I made a difference for her in some small way.
