when you KNOW you need help, and you aren’t afraid to admit it, how do you go about asking for help?
i asked my mom today and she said to call or email the pastor and let him know what’s going on. so i emailed him, since i couldn’t find the phone number. waiting for his reply.
it’s very humbling, and it was awkward to do. why does it feel so bad to ask for help, even though you KNOW you need it?!
people are always saying “let me know if you need anything” but when you do need help, how do you ask? AND what kind of response do you get usually?
it’s just such a strange feeling to be so in “need” of someone else.
here’s what i wrote to the pastor that would help us:
someone coming for general clean-up – kitchen, bathrooms, etc
someone coming for laundry help – doing and putting it away
someone bringing dinners
someone watching the boys so i can rest.
maybe someone grocery shopping?
also if anyone in the church has one of those huge foldable gates (that can go across the room), we are looking for one of those, to block off our dining room. josiah is truly a monkey, and ends up on the dining room table very often.
hopefully it wasn’t too beggy. 🙁
i really need your continued prayers!!!!!!!
