"He who gives when he is asked has waited too long." ~Sunshine Magazine.
I, like most of us, am stubborn and independent. The thought of having to ask someone for a 'favor' finds me with clenched jaw. Throughout the decades of my life, when finding myself in need, I went without - or asked my dear mother. Or God. Somehow asking God is easy to do since we are taught 'ask, and it is given.' Yet, throughout my life, there have been hundreds of times that someone out there was observant, was listening to the nudges of the Spirit, and reached out to me. Someone didn't wait to be asked. These people humble me. They are the teachers and angels in our lives. I want to be one of them. - Beth Almond Ford
