Yesterday I demolished an old Pergola whose support beams were rotting in the ground. It had already begun leaning and I knew it wouldn’t take much to take the rest of it apart. I stood directly under it and pushed, but instead of falling at an angle it came straight down! Beth, who was doing some painting a few yards away asked; “Do you need some help?” “Yes!” I screamed and she came running over to give me the extra boost I needed to gently lay it down instead of being squished underneath it. “My hero!”
Wisdom tells us that life, at times, will give us more than we can bear ourselves. The heavy burdens we carry can get too much for us to handle. We are blessed if we can count on others who will help us shoulder the load, be there for us to get a grip and not be crushed under the burden.
Be thankful for friends such as these and do not take them for granted.
