Story: Helping Someone Cry



by: Murray Lancaster, Source unknown

A little girl who was late coming home for supper. Her mother made

the expected irate parent's demand to know where she had been.

The little girl replied that she had stopped to help Janie, whose

bicycle was broken in a fall. "But you don't know anything about

fixing bicycles," her mother responded. "I know that," said the

girl. "I just stopped to help her cry."

Not many of us know

anything about fixing bicycles, either. And when our friends

have fallen and are broken, not their bicycles but their lives, none

of us knows how to fix that either. We simply cannot fix

someone else's life, even though that's what we would like most to

do. But like the little girl, we can stop to help them cry. That

is the best we can do. And that can be a lot!



Every single night we go to bed, without any assurance of

being alive the next morning, but still most of us set the alarm

to wake up. That's called HOPE.



Sometimes you have to experience the bad,

so that you can learn to appreciate the good

things that enter your life.
