Vintage Gwen Chapel-A Little Help

This book is fun and inspirational and I thought I'd share some quotes out of it today!

"They Said It"

"Refusing to ask for help when you need it is refusing someone the chance to be helpful."
Ric Ocasek

"My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start.  So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake.  I feel better already."
Dave Barry

"Things are never quite as scary when you've got a best friend."
Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

"A friend is someone who helps you up when you're down, and if they can't, they lay down beside you and listen."

"God has not called us to see through each other, but to see each other through."
Author Unknown

"Remember, we all stumble, every one of us.  That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand."
Emily Kimbrough

Do you see the theme?  These quotes came from the chapter titled, "A Little Help, Please."
What would we do without helpful, encouraging words?  I like what 2 Corinthians 1:4 says {The Message}
"He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us."
I find it comforting to know I'm not alone in my struggles, not only do I have God but plenty of others who He uses to help get me through who have been there and done that.  And guess what? Therefore I can be a help to someone else.  My miscarriage has already helped someone else...I would have never of thought it! I sure am glad God used it to do so, it makes having gone through it less painful.

Happy Weekend!
