Helping Cry

A little girl who was late coming home for supper. Her
mother made the expected irate parent's demand to know
where she had been.

The little girl replied that she had stopped to help
Janie, whose bicycle was broken in a fall.

"But you don't know anything about fixing bicycles,"
her mother responded.

"I know that," the girl said. "I just stopped to help
her cry."

Not many of us know anything about fixing bicycles,
either. And when our friends have fallen and broken,
not their bicycles but their lives, none of us knows
how to fix that. We simply cannot "fix" someone else's
life, even though that's what we would like most to

But like the little girl, we can stop to help them
cry. That is the best we can do. And that is a lot!
