Advice to my team – Asking for help

Dear Team,

While I love to offer help, I abhor asking for it.  Life is funny that way – this time I had no choice.

When I asked for your help, you had two reactions.  You were clearly worried about me – and I thank you for the outpouring of hugs, prayers, and well wishes.  Yet you were also excited about the opportunity to step up.  To show me what you’re made of.

I also excited to be back and to see what amazing things you’ve done while I was gone.


Asking for help is not weak. it builds strength in those willing to lend a hand.
