She: And you don't want to talk about it? Why? Did you do something wrong? Are you afraid of something? Whatever it is, let me help.
He: Let me help. A hundred years or so from now, I believe, a famous novelist will write a classic using that theme. He'll recommend those three words even over, "I love you."
Let me help.
It's easy to be the helper. It's hard to let someone help. For one thing, what if they don't want to? What if no one wants to and you are left all alone? What if no one cares about you and no one says, "Let me help." But what if they do?
If you know me, you know everything is Star Trek. I love the stories, the way aliens can tell us about ourselves, how good humanity is, how wonderfully inventive, surprising, and pure of heart. We travel to the stars and do the right thing. Always. Humans are doing the right thing in space.
Let me help.
There is a line from a song: a friend is someone who lets you help. It's probably a famous saying too, older than the song.
I want to help, to always be the superhero. It doesn't always work that way. Sometimes I need. Sometimes you do. I don't know why it's like that. But "let me help" is a promising phrase. It gives me hope in our broken world that these are the words people might want to say. Not just in TV shows, in real life, in the real world right here.
What are your three words?
What an interesting idea - that "Let me help," would become more prevalent than "I love you." Is that because we all think we know best? *smileReplyDelete
Sandy, I wish we lived close to one another. I would love to have time with you and hear your heart. You are wonderful.ReplyDelete
Hi Sandi! My three words would be something like: "I am here". So many times, we just need to be heard. Not so much have anything done for us, but just to have the companionship of someone who would let us talk.ReplyDelete
It is all a cycle though. Sometimes I can help, sometimes I need it. Hopefully, I am open to both.
I like the three words Let me help... I agree with Ceil... So may of us need help wether it is just a ear who will listen.. Anyone can say I love you I had many people say I love You but they were never there... As for my teapots well probably a whole lot to many, but they have been keeping me company more or less since mama passed on... Love n hugs JaniceReplyDelete
Thank You Sandi (3)ReplyDelete
Hi Sandi~~My three words might be "what's your need" we all have needs of some sort and should be willing to reach out to others in need, but then, we too have needs and are we humble enough to allow others to help with our needs?ReplyDelete
Your post leaves one to ponder...
Hello Sandi, I like these words. Let me help. All depends on what is needed at the time. Happy Friday, enjoy your day & weekend!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much Sandi. My 3 words are: Let e alone. That is not always good :-)ReplyDelete
Probably, "What can I do?"ReplyDelete
Interesting food for thought...I think my three words would be "Complete in Him"....truly, the Lord is the Answer to everything that matters. Blessings, CamilleReplyDelete
