Holding Each Other's Hands in the Snow
--by TC, posted Feb 22, 2018
There was a mom walking her son to the same stop while struggling with 3-year-old twins. One was screaming and crying the entire way. After the bus left I walked with her and she explained that the boy she was carrying is non-verbal. He can make sounds but no words at this point.
I held out my hand to the boy who was walking and he took it. Soon I was holding the hands of both boys. They were quite content to walk with me while I chatted with their mom. I felt I was of service to all in those few minutes we walked, giving the boys my unconditional acceptance and their mom someone to talk to. It made me very happy, too.
In our life there are many slippery ways than snow.
Hope this little care of yours inspire others to "hold hands" in the difficult times of their lives. Sometimes they just need some encouragement, care and support. Thanks for sharing.
