Look For The Helpers

07 July 2017 Written by 

Another terrorist attack – this time in Manchester, England. We are all sick to our stomachs, sick in our hearts. We shake our heads in disbelief. Why? Why this hatred? Why are so many people drawn to this way of life, living with evil intent and hatred? My mind just can’t make sense of it.

 

Today on Twitter a writer shared this quote from our Neighborhood friend, Mr. Rogers. It gives me comfort. It makes sense when there is no other sense to be made. It reminds me to not give up on giving love.

 

Wherever I am, I can give the free gift of love. I can give comfort to those who are grieving terrible losses. I can be gentle and kind in the face of hatred and cruelty. I can give hope where there seems to be none.

 

I will be the face of love to those who are disheartened, disillusioned, defeated, and afraid. I know from personal experience the great power that love has – especially in the face of evil. Helpers are everywhere!

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
