The Relationship Is Everything

The Relationship Is Everything

I got to experience a “warm all over” feeling today when I asked for help. I am a gardener in the absolute depth of what that can be…my wonderful neighbors and friends know that. And this month I am a one-year-old chicken lady. For the last 5 weeks a truly talented guy has been building me a chicken coop from only pallets. Today it arrived right before the rain and wind and the location for it is in the back of my yard.

The guy delivering and setting it up needed help. It was a struggle to get it where I wanted it. It was not going to be possible to get it, with the manpower we had available, to the spot it needed to go. I called my neighbor to ask if they could help and bring a dolly too. They were about to celebrate a birthday dinner and go out of their driveway and in a flash there were, mom/dad/oldest boy, in my yard helping…with a dolly.

That is a relationship. When someone asks for help and you just go and help. Of course, I made them do a tour of my new chicken coop – a terrific co-designed project – and then off they went to the birthday celebration. I felt rich, cared for and inspired by this help and this relationship. I wish this for you too.

May I help?
