Whatta gift!

A few years back, my mother had come to my rescue, yet again.  On the TV, in the motel room, there was a daughter saying to her frustrated, wheel-chair bound mother, "don't you know what a gift you are?"  I had turned to my mom and said, "I'm such a gift."

We laughed, but there was a good point that had come to the surface.  It's the great people who reach out and assist those of us who get to be grateful.  Conversely, without those of us who are in need, others wouldn't have a chance to demonstrate their abilities to meet those needs.

Like the mother in the movie, there are times when we all could use a little help.  Like the daughter in the movie, there are times when we are happy to assist.  I've been in both positions.  Most everyone has.  I get more enjoyment when I assist someone else, than when I accept it myself.  Giving is truly a gift.
