Just To Be There

This is Digby Pancake. Do you feel like you are enough?

For me, sometimes I feel bad I can’t do exactly all the things I used to do the way I did them. Some days it bothers me. Some days it doesn’t. Sometimes the thoughts make me sink into depression.


But when Girl Person got sick this weekend, and it was storming and pouring rain at the same time, I felt like I could not do much.

Even Brickle felt like he couldn’t do much. What could we do?

Girl Person told Boy Person he may have to take care of us. She said she had to go to sleep. And when she said that, I realized that instead of focusing on getting better, she was worried about us being ok. She was worried we would be bored. But she didn’t know that we didn’t feel that way. In fact, when she admitted that she needed help, Brickle and I knew how to help. We knew what our job was for the day. Just being there. Because she acknowledged what she needed out loud.

You may be reluctant to admit you need help. You may also be on the other side and not know if you can do enough or be enough to help. But if you ask me, and I assume you did, the first and most important step for everyone is saying what you need. And not have others try to guess. That’s wasted time. Time that can be spent getting better.

Just to be there is so important. The sun, the moon, the stars are there. Isn’t that comforting?

The birds, the clouds, the rain is there. Isn’t that comforting? Having a purpose is important for us all! And sometimes that purpose is just being there. Good job!
