If we want understanding.
It's so nice to have someone that we can call.
Help and understanding are things we take for granted.
Until we need these things, then we realize how much
We need them.
After things are looked after
we are RELIEVED.

You have a way to tell it like it is

Barb my friend so few people know the meaning of "For Granted" to lose something we have each day, to cope with parts that want obey, The strength that you pass over in words, lets hope some meaning can flow too.

lesson to be learned

yep clive that's why Ii write about everyday life, before all this happened little things didn't bother me, but now I get more than one thing to do and I feel overwhelmed. So I'm trying to let people that have everything ok be thank-ful and don't take things for granted the way I did when things were fine.thank-you clive for understanding what I'm trying to say.

how true it is

Hey Barb! You've touched a good topic! I hope I'm not misinterpreting anything, but, isn't it just like, when we see someone who needs help, or who doesn't understand something, we don't try and lend them a hand..... But yet, when the tables turn, and we need the help, we realize how important it is.... I may not make much sense, but, I always enjoy your work!

People that are challenged try to be independent like others but to have someone out of consideration, not pity, help to make things easier is welcomed and appreciated.
