It’s a great time of year to reflect upon giving and receiving SUPPORT! Asking others for support is actually giving them a gift. You are allowing them to make a contribution in your life and by working together you both will benefit. I’m sure you can remember several times when you were asked to support someone and you were honored for the request. Allow someone to be honored by you. The generosity in the receiving of support comes when you let that person know what a difference they have made. If someone asks you for support during this holiday season (or any time) take a moment to see the courage it took for them to ask and be glad that they asked you; because they see you as someone that they can count on to support them. It may even just be encouragement that someone needs, or that YOU need. Don’t be afraid to ask, you don’t have to do it alone.
