Have you heard the story about the little boy and his neighbor? 

One day a little boy was playing outside.  His Mother came up to him to let him know it was time to come inside.  He looked up and noticed across the street his neighbor sitting in a chair.  He asked his mother what was wrong and she mentioned that his wife had died.  So the young boy told his Mom he would go over to see their neighbor.  A few hours passed, and now it was the evening.  The Mother noticed that her son was sitting on her neighbor’s lap and had not moved for several hours.  She waved for him to come home.  When the little boy came through the door, his Mother asked him, “What were you doing with our neighbor?”  And the little boy replied, “I was helping him.” 

The little boy didn’t do anything but sit with the man while he grieved. 

Remember, we are all doing the best we can with what we have and what we know at the time.

As the Rolling Stones lyrics go, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need.”
