saying yes to ‘help’

I bought a new sofa and I had to take the old one out the front door and get it around the street to the back yard. I was on my own and just wanted to get it over with so I set about pushing and shoving and it was an absolute beast and it was going to be a truly wretched affair.

Everyone who passed me offered to help. I was turning them down because the experience of moving this thing was so awful that I didn’t want them to suffer. It was only a short distance and I knew I could make it. A car stopped and a child got out and refused to let me do it with out him helping. So I said yes to his help and together we pushed the sofa around to my yard gate.

Ages ago some one I knew stated to me ‘I will help you’ and it made a difference to me. A clear and unambiguous offer of help sometimes is all that is needed.
I resolve to offer more ‘help’ and I also reserve the right to turn it down.
