A Support System

We all need a support system. Yours may consist of a parent or parents, good friends or siblings, or even perhaps longtime co-workers.

It doesn’t matter who your support system consists of; it’s just important that you have one. Of course, if you’re married your number one support system should be your spouse.

I’ve been thinking about support systems lately, and one came so dearly to mind. When our oldest son was eight years old, he received an organ transplant.

We had only lived in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area for a couple of years, however, a couple we had met and gotten to know helped us through that difficult time by being a support system extraordinaire.

Both mine and my husband’s families lived thousands of miles away, but this dear couple surprised us by wanting to help in any way possible. To say they saved the day is an understatement!

As I mentioned in other blog posts life is hard, it just is. We need people in our lives that love unconditionally. We need them to speak truth into our lives; we need their shoulder to cry on, we need their words to cheer us up and sometimes in a crisis, we need their physical help.

My prayer for each person reading this blog post is that you have people in your life that are there for you.

If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Ecclesiastes 4:10 (NIV)

Have a blessed day!
