The value of Napkins

Funny story. Today I had the kids out and about, and it's "Cheap Pizza Monday" at the local Fazolis. The Kiddos LOVE their pizza. Mr. B says it is tradition to get him 2 pepperoni pizzas every Monday. He eats on these pizzas the rest of the week, so I can't complain too much. Yesterday we added a cheese pizza for Princess J. The lady at the drive-thru window looked in the car, and handed me a HUGE bag of napkins. She said, "I've been where you are...you're gonna need these. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but you're gonna need these." There is much more power in those words than one would imagine. Think about it. These are just napkins, but it was the help, assistance, and good deed that they are a symbol of that we all need. We may not need anyone's help today, or tomorrow....but one day we will. And one day someone may need us, so we should be ready to lend a helping hand....or a napkin.
