  1. May we be willing to be vulnerable with others & just as willing to take the meal or tangible aid to those we know can use it. Both giver role & receiver role will be blessed beyond measure. (((0)))

  2. Thank you for sharing! It’s such a blessing to be reminded of God’s amazing love and presence. Be blessed!

  3. Becky, your words are do relatable from 30 years ago when I walked in your shoes, as well as in the present when I’m given the privilege to come along the moms who are our neighbors. Thank you for sharing your beautifully vulnerable,
    real world experience.

  6. Becky,

    Why do we feel as though we must do it all by ourselves? By not asking for help you are robbing others of the joy of serving. We were made for community. God wants us to help our neighbors. We can’t do that unless you clue us in on your problems. When hubby’s ex-MIL was dealing with aging parents health issues I got food for her & hubby. My in-laws were both dealing with health issues & I would always bring food or take MIL to doctor. The day my dad died I called ex-MIL to let her know. She came buy with supper for that night. We can all help out in some way or other but we must first know of the situation.

    Blessings 🙂
