That second question that makes a difference

We've all heard of acts of kindness that made a huge difference in someone's life. Have you ever been the recipient of such an act? Last week was a rough week, Chris was completely worn out and blue. This is so strangely out of the ordinary that I hardly knew which end was up anymore! Friday night the parents were invited to VBS for the final night so we went. We were soon wishing we'd have worn signs saying "No. Thanks for asking." When Eli Schrock's sat down across from us to eat and asked the familiar question "Are you in your house yet?" we had to laugh! But, Eli asked another question, "What can we do to help?" Before we knew it he was planning to come over Saturday and bring the router Chris needed and telling him where to find more glue! Saturday Chris and Eli took our counter tops to Eli's shop to work on. By the time they came back Chris was like a different person!! You never know what an act of kindness might mean to someone else. It might seem small to you, but it might do wonders for them!

We totally understand the on house, work on house, live in mess, out of energy....but if someone comes along to help, the outlook changes drastically!

Oh wonderful! So happy for you. We were one of the ones who asked the first question, but not the second one...:(
