My manager when I was selling real estate and feeling rather down because a customer I had spent a lot of time with ended buying from another real estate broker told me to "stop marrying everybody."
This episode came to mind this morning when I meditated upon Simon the Cyrene helping Jesus carry the cross. I asked myself if I were a Simon. Of course, I told myself. I help everybody whether they want my help or not.
If it weren't for my husband my house would be a homeless shelter for ex-cons, dogs, and cats. God gave me hubby for a reason.
