Being helped

Seeing as I am mobility impaired people find it necessary to help me. If you ask my family they will say, "Help her, but not too much. She hates that." So true.

I finally got to go to youth group tonight. :)

The guys there were quite nice, the girls were too. But I suppose this post is mostly about getting help from guys. It's different. I opened my door and Adam came running over, I suppose he thought he was going to open the door for me. Then Josh opened the church door really wide for me and he walked with me back to the youth area. Chris has been talking about my injury to people, I have the distinct feeling that he's been praying for me. Chris has a very tender heart, nice guy.

I don't know why it's hard for me to accept help, but sometimes it just is.

I would encourage all my guy friends to do those nice things for girls, even if they blush. I do that, mostly because when they help me it takes me a long time to do stuff now. So guys, do those things because girls do actually appreciate it.

And YOU little missy, use the stinkin' handi-cart! Take advantage of it whilst you can, wee lassie.

I'm always nice to the female kind.

Partly because one of them brought me into this world XD

If I ever get amputated from the waste down, I'm going to walk everywhere on my hands.

..however I don't wish to ever get amputated from the waste down.

Elyse said...

I wouldn't wish that either, Brian. Walking on your hands would be quite lame.

FC: *thumbs up* Oh and yes, I suppose that you do have a debt to your Mom. As we all do.

I've always found it so refreshing to be around a chivalrous male. They are so rare, but I believe it's the way God designed guys to be. Three cheers for door-openers, jar-lid-unscrewers and can-I-help-you-ers!
