This morning, on my way into the pharmacy, an elderly lady was behind me and moving gingerly. Since I was ahead of her I grabbed a grocery cart, brought it to her and she said; “Thank you.”
After I finished picking up the medicine for my wife who continues to recover from surgery I headed out to the parking lot. Another lady was putting a grocery cart into a stall and limping noticeably. I thought to myself; “I wish I had been there to offer assistance to her too.”
Wisdom teaches us to help others in any way we can, every way we can and as often as we can. Those who are hurting, those who are bearing the burden of life are fellow sojourners on this shared. path and we are called to walk with them, show them the way, carry them if necessary.
