Recently, a teacher gently chided me for not coming to her sooner with financial problems, she had offered in the past that if we ever needed to borrow a little, she could help. She said that she had problems with pride herself, but what she had learned is when you do not tell others about your problems, you are denying them the chance to bless you and receive, in turn, a blessing from God. I had truly never thought of it like that.
I’ve been more honest around school lately, telling others the truth when they ask how things are going and if they ask, what’s going on with me. I have been blessed with gifts of money for food, advice that is genuinely helpful, and actual food. I am so thankful for these wonderful people who have helped me out. Today I received two such gifts. One will help me greatly in the coming weeks purchase food and supplies I need to get us through June. The other… It really is the thought that counts.
As for me, I will aim blessings towards both people, and hope they receive their blessings in some way or another. It’s nice to know though I feel isolated and alone sometimes, I really am not, especially when it matters most!
