Do you see a common theme here? It’s called accepting help – not begrudgingly, but with grace and gratitude.
Maybe your partner doesn’t load the dishwasher exactly the way you like. And for sure your kids don’t keep their rooms clean like you would.
But repeat after me: it doesn’t matter. During this time when you’re literally fighting for your life, the smallest parts of that life – the day-to-day duties – don’t amount to the proverbial hill of beans.
Robert Frost said it best: “Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.”
Cancer is the impetus that sends you from the doctor’s office straight home – to your family.
But they don’t have to take you in – they want to. They need to. And they will.
If you do one simple thing: accept their love, and let them.
