on my own. I thought of myself as a pretty independent woman. I took care of what needed
to be done in and around my home, even if it took me longer than if I had hired someone.
I’m not good at asking for help or even accepting it when offered, but since I broke my foot, I
have been totally dependent on the graciousness of others, I’ve swallowed my pride and
opened my doors, which has become a revolving door of smiles.
I’ve learned a lot from this experience, but what I’ve come away with the most is that there is
a world of wonderful people out there who do not hesitate to step up to the plate and help
someone, expecting nothing in return. I’m humbled and filled with gratitude for their
kindness. On top of that, I feel I’ve welcomed some amazing new friends into my world that I
will always treasure.
I look forward to my healing but hope that in some way I can repay their kindness. I’d like to
believe I'll be the next one to reach out and spread a little generosity and kindness to
someone in need.
How about you?
