Help Us Play

I was hanging some Christmas lights on Saturday when a friend came by and hopped out of his truck.  He hustled over to where I was standing on the ladder and rather urgently said, “Paul, we need your help – you and your boys – can you come help us?”  Well, I’m generally willing to drop whatever when someone needs some help, so I said, “Sure Markus, let me get the boys – what do you need?”  He responded that they were trying to play a game of flag football and only had six guys!  I got a chuckle out of this, then started thinking – if I am so willing to help somebody work, shouldn’t I also be willing to help somebody play?  Play is the work of children, some of the most important work in the world. 

 

Take time to help somebody play today!

    That is really funny! I almost didn’t read this today because the subject said “Help us play”… my thought was I don’t have time to “play”.
    BUT I know that your e-mails always make my day better so I read it and of course – it is just what I needed to hear as usual!

    Thanks Dr. Paul!

    We have to take time out to enjoy ourselves once in a while. Nothing like some physical exercise to release stress and have some fun.
