I know this week we were supposed to be focusing on giving gifts to a neighbor, teacher or co-worker and instead I am the receiver instead of the giver.
After dealing with 5 feverish kids with achy bodies and throwing up and diarrhea since Easter (and not feeling that great myself) I had a wonderful friend and neighbor call me and ask what I needed and I gave her my usual answer of “Nothing, we’re fine”. Instead of listening to my words I think she listened to my voice and told me that she would be bringing dinner in for us tonight. I think she knew if she asked I would just say no.
Why is it so hard to accept the gift of service from others?
The SPT challenge for this month is on my sidebar.
