Food stalls at the bazaar - “A man who strains himself on the stage is bound, if he is any good, to strain all the people sitting in the stalls.”

Have you noticed how help is often avail­able just when you need it? A few years ago, a California artist carved a unique Christmas gift for his parents in Connecticut. It was a four-foot-tall statue of a hitchhiker, with thumb extended. (The perfect gift for the discriminating homeowner...) His gift was unusual, but his method of shipping the statue to his folks was even stranger. He sim­ply set it beside the road and let it "hitch" its way across the continent. Around the statue's neck he hung a sign bearing his parents' New England ad­dress, and across its chest was printed the word "Connecticut" in large letters. Several weeks and some 2,500 miles later, unknown hands delivered the gift to the wood­carver's parents in time for Christmas.

I find it heartening to remember that there are always those willing to help. And it's true regardless of the circumstance. There is someone willing to extend a hand, lend an ear or share a heart. Whether you need temporary assistance or your life has experienced a meltdown, there is someone who wants to help.

In every important way, you are never really alone. You have a life "support system" consisting of people you may have never met! And it's one of your greatest resources.
