I'm so enjoying my clean floors and windows thanks to my sweetest friend Lynn Cowell. Hopefully, our home will be back to "normal" after the painters come and go next week.
Lynn's gift of help was such a sacrifice of her time and I was more than blessed to have her here. As I mentioned at the end of my last post, I've been thinking about how we do help or don't help out our sisters on a regular basis. Now before you bite my head off, I know we are all more than busy and our schedules are filled to over flowing. Everyone has more than they can handle on a daily basis, so stepping in to lend a hand sounds overwhelming at best.
And that's my point. Each one of us could use a helping hand from time to time.
So here's my idea and I'd LOVE your input.
I think it would be great if we and three of our bestest girlfriends could commit to helping one another once a year.
Now, I'm talking about your very bestest girlfriends who know that your house is not always clean and don't care. The girlfriends who've seen you without make-up and don't care. The girlfriends who know you can't cook and don't care. The girlfriends you can call at the drop of a hat and are there for you. The girlfriends who love you just the way you are, without the judgement.
That's the easy part, the next part is more difficult for some of us.
It's humbling ourselves and asking for help.
I'm talking about the ugly, dirty help we all need but are afraid or too proud to ask:
Cleaning out closets or an overflowing basement.
Organizing our "stuff"
You add to the list...
Ideally, it would be great if all four friends were present to lend a helping hand each time, that way the work could get done quickly and there would be lots of opportunity for fellowship.
So what do you think? What can you add to my idea and how can you improve on it?
I can't wait to hear from you on this.
There just might be a goodie bag give away... Hint Hint!
