...leaner leanee on me

Sometimes people, even tertiary relationships need an ear. In a world full of people some can still feel alone. You can see it in their eyes if it's light enough out, or if you have enough light. I'm not saying to adopt everyone that you run into; that simply isn't wise. A wave, a nod of the head or a simple gesture of kindness goes a long way. We don't have enough time to walk a mile in every one's shoes that we encounter, and nodding our heads at everyone may cause some to think that you are suffering from a neurological disorder. Keep it simple, keep your eyes open and keep the light on. If a friend or family member is going through a hard time, take the time to really listen and think about what you and they are saying. People sometimes need to lean on you. Sometimes you need to lean on someone. Find the time and strength please. We are all human. On this day in 1889 the Eiffel Tower was officially opened to the public at the Universal Exposition in Paris. Have you noticed how it still stands?
Have a great day, and do your best to be a strong lean-ee. Tomorrow you may be the lean-er.
