Thursday Thought – Would you.....?

I recently saw this on a friends Skype as their quote,

If you saw me barely able to crawl, would you carry me on your shoulders? Would you let me fly on your wings? Would you be the angel in my world?

Even though I have never met this person I wanted to tell them "Yes! Absolutely without a doubt!" Often in the family we are there for the person that needs the shoulder to cry or stand on, we try to help them fly and wish we could be the angel in their world. But it is sometimes oh so hard to accept...

So my question for you is...

If I saw you barely able to crawl, would you let me carry you on my shoulders? Would you accept my wings to fly on? Would you allow me the honor of being the angel in your world?

So true that it's hard to accept sometimes... I would like to say yes, I would accept it. But I know that many times my reaction is a bit of the opposite.

So true...
It's sometimes so hard to accept love and let another carry you through the hard times..
I loved this thought, it convicted me and touched me...
I think I'd let you carry me, Gabe...

Beautiful! It's a great quote and so true. Thanks for posting it Gabe. Helps you to some times just step back and see the world and needs of others around u.
Not sure if I'd let YOU carry me though.. Wouldn't want to be the cause for ur already hurting back. :) We'll just pretend. then I'll carry you.

Wow...that's so true. I don't really have an answer to that question, sometimes it's harder to receive than it is to give. Beautiful post.

I like your post. I think it would depend on how many people you were already carrying. Sometimes one person can only take so much. :)
