Welcome back (or welcome)! This is a newsletter with stories and tools to help you be more comfortable as you help others in hard times. Today’s story is about helpful brevity. And the tool is a list of ways to be helpful to a friend in the ER. +++ When I called
It took me several years (!) to learn it was okay to leave. We can always come back if necessary. And we do not have to be there when the patient or church member breathes his or her last breath (although I have been there too many times to remember). What people will remember was that we were there.
These 12 suggestions are full of wisdom. I will never forget the friend who just showed up at the waiting room with hugs (very few words) and a bag filled with water and snacks. She provided everything I needed at that moment. This is a friend who just always seems to know when to show up and what to bring in hard situations. May God continue to Bless your writing. Myra
There is great wisdom in all of these, Jon,, but especially in number 12.
