Gratitude Day 18: Help

I had two friends who helped me move and bring all of my stuff up to my new apartment. Helped me put stufd together. Helped me make it a home. I had other friends who helped me have stuff I was needing for my home. I was and am very blessed to have help.

Sometimes I forget I have osteoarthritis. I forget I have no cartilage in my knees, and my stubbornness of "I can do this all by myself" and "I got this" changes to "I can't do this without help" and "I don't got this at all." It's a humbling reminder that it's okay to depend on others for help and to return the favor when you can.

Throughout my life, some friends and family have been invaluable in their willingness and ability to help me...and I am grateful. So very grateful.

May I never take people for granted who come and help. The world is a better place with helpers!!
