Sometimes we are offered help in life by people who mean well and when they offer they really genuinely do want to help, but they all have their own lives to live and a lot of times when the call comes even though they want to help they can’t, and that’s fine. There are also people who want to help but only on their terms and don’t or can’t help in the way we need to be helped which although annoying is fine too we will never turn away help.
But sometimes when the chips are down and you ask someone directly for help and it’s given without question you feel very humbled as I do tonight. Our lives are completely consumed right now by our children and getting through each day hoping for a time when we can start to function properly again, so all the “little jobs” I would normally chip away at are just not getting done and its starting to show.
Whether it was frustration or desperation I called my brother yesterday and asked him if he could spare an hour or two to do some DIY jobs so I could concentrate on fixing the tiles in the bathroom and reseal the bath? He just said I will be round at 10am is there anything special I need to bring?
All I will say is he turned up at 10 and was brilliant!
