Helping Hands
Submitted by David Jones

While my wife was away on vacation,  I had planned to install new cabinets in our garage as a surprise. The task proved to be far more challenging than I expected. Just as I was about to throw in the towel, a co-worker pulled into my driveway. He was just "in the neighborhood" and stopped by to say hi. With my garage door open he could see the struggle I was inflicting upon myself. He offered to help and together we installed all the cabinets in no time. When I tried to pay him for his help and time, he declined. It was a small act of kindness for him, but it affected me greatly. This act of selfless service came at a time when I needed it most; I have a hard time asking for help, but in this situation I needed it. I am grateful for co-workers who lend a helping hand when least expected.
