This was how my friend responded when I thanked her for hours of truly needed help.
We spoke for awhile after that about the importance of knowing when--and who--to ask for help, but I am left with an overabundance of gratitude.
I admire and want to emulate my dear friend's commitment to serve others when she can.
This line of thinking goes very well with a quote from one dynamic human being, a geothermal scientist I met in Iceland:
if you have a question you ask and if I can I will answer. If I cannot answer or I do not know I will tell you. And if I do not have time and am
busy or more crazy or more lazy than usual then I will not respond...
Definitely has me thinking of ways I can help others, and a way I'd like to start living. To ask for help when needed, move on if someone is unable
to provide it, and develop my own talent in such a way that people can come to me for specific advice.
I'll leave with you with this gem, the only other small bit of service I can offer up after an exhausting but productive day.
Have a great night!
