When I read this post, I was taken back to my younger days. My dad passed away when I was three and growing up with a single working parent isn’t all that easy. There are so so many people who went out of their way to “fill the gap”, who were there for us. Family and friends were always around to support my mummy.
I’ve always believed that ALL human beings are fundamentally loving and good, and we will always care for each other.
When I was down with covid in April, our neighbours, immediately came to our aid and went out of their way to help us with groceries and anything else we needed.
Here’s a lovely poem which I had saved. I’m not sure who the poet is…
You’re never alone, I’m always near,
When you’re troubled, down or blue.
All you have to do is call me,
I’m always here for you.
It doesn’t matter where I’m at,
It doesn’t matter when.
When you need someone to talk to,
I’m here to be your friend.
If you need someone to hold your hand,
or a hug to say I care.
If you need a shoulder to cry on,
for you I will be there.
So never think you are a burden,
when the weight gets to be to much.
You might find if look hard enough,
a good friend could be the right touch.
Let’s keep filling the gap, much needed during these difficult times! ❤️
