I didn’t have a hard day at work. But I’m frazzled nonetheless.

When one member of this family is having a hard time, we all feel it. It’s like we are a unit that has many tendrils. A tremor in one is felt by the rest.

But we sometimes don’t know one of us is having a hard time until we are told. We can’t help unless we know. So once again, we turn to a saying we frequently use: You have to ask for what you need.

Once that happens, help is on the way. Support is given. Burdens are eased. Stresses you thought you had to shoulder are distributed evenly among the members of the family. Life gets easier.

Don’t forget. We are a unit. And we won’t let one part of that unit fail.

We’ll be over Friday with the shampooer.
