I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said, 'There's nothing that I can do for you that you can't do for yourself.' He said, 'Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that that would help.' So I sat with him a while then I asked him how he felt. He said, 'I think I'm cured.'
Take some time this week to literally or figuratively hold someone's hand as they seek to heal or recover from life's challenges. Extend compassion to the life of another knowing that compassion heals not only those we express it towards, but ourselves as well.
