There’s very little that involves more contentment, healing, comfort, and satisfaction than helping and working alongside friends. It’s how I spent a recent, very cold Saturday morning. One of the most compassionate and generous people I know moved, and many people turned out to help. It was a big job, but it was enjoyable to spend hours working alongside friends, both old and new.
Then I sat at one of my very favorite people’s kitchen table to help her with a gift (shh, it’s a surprise). I finished up mid to late afternoon, and I had such a sense of peace.
In a time that is chaotic, on the heels of being surprised yet again with some disappointing news, I spent time with people I like to do life with, people I enjoy doing life for – helping, encouraging, connecting, sharing, savoring.
Move through life with people. They’re worth the heavy lifting.
