helping others

when did we say it time to stop helping others?

“In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.” Flora Edwards quotes

This quotes comes in so many languages that my my elders use to tell me growing up... today my friends was doing some mini shifting and me and Junior went to help out, it was friends or neighbors do. We help out carrying things loading them up into the lorry and really enjoyed ourselves.

Thought the body was a little sore it was a pleasure more ways then one. For Junior it was nice to seem him put his back into it despite his young age.

You got to trust your self with children, there was an empty gas tank that he wanted to carry, I took a grip of the tank estimate its weight and told him to try, it was not an easy task but wanted to so I let him. I guess if there were others around they would have ended up saying "Oh No how can you carry that, oh its dangerous " etc etc

I learn since he was young not to put children on a leash, let him try, if he fails we are there to help. Do you remembers your first bike ride without support, you gonna stumble, you gonna trip, and you might hurt your self a little and you learn better.

Kids need to have fun doing what they are doing, you just need to learn to trust them a little.
