Mmm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.
Help From My Friends, Beatles, 1967
I hate asking for favors! Just the thought of that I can't do it myself in my fragile mind evokes the feeling of weakness, or worse, failure. I am (after all) woman - hear me roar! I can do anything, I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman! Okay, it's a Musical Monday WITHIN a Musical Monday! Where was I? Oh yes, getting by with a little help from my friends. Helen Reddy will be back with I am Woman another day. Today, it's the Beatles.
Last week with the death of my mother-in-law, and subsequent travel of my husband, I was forced to ask for help. Because the truth is, I'm not invincible. Only God is. I am flawed and in need of help, especially when my helpmate (husband) is gone.
I am thankful for Christian friends who come along side me, and help with meals, carpool, childcare and emotional support. It's been a hard week, no doubt. But I got by with a little help from my friends. I still don't like asking for help, but I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends.
Do not forsake your friend or a friend of your family, and do not go to your relative’s house when disaster strikes you— better a neighbor nearby than a relative far away.
