Cold. Super cold. Deep freeze cold. Fingers falling off from too much time on the coupon cold.

Why is it so hard for us to ask for help?

If We Ask=We Are Unable=We Are Helpless=We Are Weak

We don’t want to be judged by our fellow men.

Like we needed to ask for help when the weight of the BWT became too great for one of us to bear and we needed to be spelled, ask for help from your friends, your family, your colleagues when that weight gets to great.

A great leader is not a Lone Wolf. A great leader can create a community that works harder for each other by demonstrating vulnerability and asking for help when he needs it. Show others that they can too.

And just like that, our homily became life, as the Q became dizzy from the workout and had to sit down and ask for help from the PAX. We prayed right there on the ground before equilibrium was reached and we headed out on our day.
