Sometimes we stick our neck out, for things we believe in, for those we love.
When we stretch to help others, we often learn and grow.
We see things Differently.
It is in those moments we can add more love and Beauty to the world, through a simple act of kindness.

It’s a beautiful vase shape! To answer your question, when I was a kid I saw an elderly man trying to stack firewood. I felt sorry for him, and I wasn’t in a hurry or anything, so I offered to help. He frowned and said, “What will it cost me?” That was the first time I learned that you have to earn someone’s trust before they’ll let you help them.
That is quite a lesson to learn! I imagine it has been helpful from that point on. Thank you for sharing it with us!
