Ever noticed yourself offering advice when.......you really need to listen ? Hard isn't it . Not listening and jumping in with advice about " what to do " is a shockingly bad habit we all need to really sit on.
If you meet a person in distress because they are trying to do too much ( typically a mothers lot . You might like to add more to helping mum here), listen hard, say " yes mum" (that maybe all you need to say ) and then the clincher--" What can I do to help ?"
You too ( however small your gift) can be come part of the work of the angel armies of heaven. Bless you for listening. and enjoy your life serving others in a wise way .
