As you clutch the grip and watch the brightly-colored banner flutter and dip above you, it’s easy to forget when you couldn’t get your kite in the air without help. Or that time someone climbed into a tree to unstick your kite for you.
When the day is fine and the wind balmy, it’s easy to forget those other times. It’s easy to overlook someone else struggling to get his kite in the air. I hope I never forget to remember what that feels like.
Note to Self: If I try to meet every need I’ll exhaust myself, but there are times I can and should help.
