Good friends

Life is busy.

I know that. I'm busy. You're busy.  All day long there are so many things that need our attention. Really important things (bills, kids, church, chocolate). Not so important things (awesome new tv shows, finding new recipes to try, playing on pintrest).  There is never a moment when you don't have something to do.

Yesterday my email was hacked. It's not too big of a deal, just everyone in my inbox started getting those stupid spam messages from me.  As of 3 minutes ago (so less than 12 hours after it happened), I have had no less than 6 friends let me know this happened.

One of them even called me (she was the first to let me know).  6 friends (ok, some are family, but they count as friends!) took time out of their busy schedule to let me know so I could fix my problem.

How often do you take time out of your busy day to help someone else. Something little, like this, that is a huge help, and took only a couple of minutes on their part, but was huge for me.  How often do we take time to lend a hand, lift someone up, ease some one's burden.

If it's been a while, try something today. Open a door for someone else. Send a card to a friend you haven't seen in a while.  Let your Mom know you love her.

You'll feel good.

And so will your friend.

(thanks guys!)

  1. This makes me giggle. I saw that you were hacked, and got on Facebook to tell you. Then I saw that L7 had beat me too it. Glad you have so many people watching out for you!
