One night long ago I woke up with what I thought was the most profound news: We are here for each other. I’ll say that again: Our reason for living is to be there for one another. Can you imagine a world where people lived as if this was true? How wonderful a place would that be? We would have support when we needed it and could support others when we were able. We would never feel alone because we would have a caring community around us.
Support can come in many ways – a shoulder to cry on, an ear to lend, a hand to hold. Or maybe a quiche to savor when life is the most challenging. It is the least that I can offer, and I do so with love.
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
