Having lived on my own for many years I have learned to be pretty self sufficient. Things that I used to rely on my brothers or dad to do I now tackle on my own. Setting up electronics can be done – even if it takes me 3 trips to the store to buy all the correct cables. Checking air pressure in the tires and the oil level are now common place and I top each up as required. Comes with having an almost 10yo car.
That being said, I still appreciate the help of others and it’s not uncommon for something others feel is ‘small’, to bring tears to my eyes. While I enjoy my independence I’m still a girl who appreciates the little things too. Lately a number of those things have come my way and I am so thankful!!
Earlier in the spring Hannah and I invited friends over for a games day. They showed up with a sweet bouquet of flowers! Yup, I teared up.
Shortly after that I went to their place for a get together and as I parked the car 3 of the guys came out and set to work. Mark carried our suitcase into the house as Hannah and I were staying with their family that night. Joel and Shawn proceeded to ask me to pop the hood of my car and checked the air filters.
I am so thankful for all of these guys and many more who are there for me and willing to help out!
