Life is short. Time passes quickly before we can appreciate the people and events in our life. Suddenly we know someone with a terminal illness. One of our parents has passed away. A college friend was killed in an accident. Caring for others just doesn’t mean caring for them when they’re sick. It means giving a friend a ride to work when their car won’t start. It means reconnecting with a friend at a distance. It means sending a birthday card or buying yarn for your grandmother who still enjoys knitting. Sometimes it’s just the little things that are so easy to take for granted. Which friend would you call if you needed a ride home from a medical procedure? Blessed are they who give to others for they receive back in time of need.
