Accepting help has always been a problem for me. I think I need to do it myself; I want to do it myself. But this life isn’t about doing it by yourself. We need help. We have a Savior who can do what we alone cannot do. As I struggled with the idea of letting others come to my house and help me de junk and organize and catch up on what I have fallen behind on, I realized I needed help although I wasn’t so anxious for the help. It is that way with the Savior he is willing to bear our burdens if we will let him. How hard it is to give up our weaknesses to him so that he might help us find strength. Letting others be aware of my weaknesses and shortcomings is quite humbling and scary. Humbling in that I know I can’t face this trial alone and need the help of friends and scary because I feel so vulnerable to have others see me “in all my glory”. But what is funny about that, is that is humbling as well, to know that I am still loved despite my shortcomings, wow! This has been a real lesson in love. Despite what we have done or what our weaknesses might be our Savior loves us and is willing to help us. How eternally grateful I am for him and for such selfless and caring friends. Thank you to all who have given of your time and prayers and thoughts and service. It is in you I find strength and through my Savior. I truly appreciate all that has been done on my behalf. You all are so kind and I know the Lord will bless you for your kindness and generosity. I treasure your friendship and love.
