Too Proud?

I see a lot of folks struggling these days.  You notice such when you do what I do.  Those struggling, however, will not tell you so.  They will press on, doing the best that they can...no matter how painful it gets!

How painful it is to see the one you love

struggle with the slightest task!
Being who they are, it's hard
for them to even ask!
Help is available--but their pride
will not let them give way;
so successful for so many years...
then it comes to this today!

How can you help an independent 
person with such need?
You offer your abilities,
but they refuse to heed.
Can it be that all can see this
save those to whom it applies?
To understand, we have to see it
through the others' eyes!
Some see 'help' as a sign of weakness-
they can't see the decline.
Even ones in leadership--trained
to spot each slight detail,
yet, when it comes to seeing themselves,
so many often fail.

It is NOT a sign of weakness to say
"I need some help somewhere!"
Oftentimes, it is the greatest
step in getting care!
And care--it is available
for everyone at all!
Just heed the signals of your best friends
and help them with the call!

Each and all of us are going through something.  All of us are different and, then, all of us are the same: WE NEED ONE ANOTHER!  That's why God put us together!  If there is anything I can do for you, just ask...no matter how big or small.  I'm here for you.
