What is your favorite day of the week? During college my favorite day of the week was Thursday because it was the unofficial start of the weekend. Of course once you start working Friday seems to be everyone’s favorite day. Saturday and Sunday’s are a no brainer! Nobody likes Mondays and let’s be honest, Tuesdays have no feel that all. That leaves Wednesdays. It signifies the middle of the week and is also known as hump day. Let me share with you why Wednesday’s have now become the most wonderful day of the week for my family. As many of you know, Susan and I have had a difficult time asking for help. The most chaotic part of the day is when Susan gets home from work. She comes in around 6:30 after a long day and tries to put together for dinner on the fly for the kids. Because my arms no longer work well, it is hard for me to even make a sandwich for them. Needless to say, a well-rounded meal was hard to achieve without them eating past 7:30 at night. After many suggestions, we finally relented and allowed someone to drop off dinner one night. Then I thought I would put on our helping hands website the opportunity for people to bring dinner to our home one day a week on Wednesdays if they wanted to. The results have been amazing. Within one hour of posting, every Wednesday night for the next three months was booked by friends who wanted to help. I reposted for the next three months and the same thing happened again. It is simply amazing what people will do to help other people. My kids can’t wait for Wednesday dinners anymore. Some meals were so good that they made the request for the same meal whenever that person signed up for another Wednesday dinner. The kids love the food, but I think my wife appreciates it the most. Wednesday’s are wonderful not just because my family gets to eat delicious meal. But they are wonderful because of the people who have made a difference in our lives. It is a good example of compassion, friendship, and kindness to others in need. I know most of the people have families of their own and have their own chaotic schedules they are dealing with and yet they find or make the time to make a difference in our lives. It may not seem like much, but our gratitude is endless for their simple act of kindness. So thank you to all those who make Wednesdays the most wonderful day of the week for our family. I know as time goes on and things progress we may be adding an additional day of the week for meals, and I have some guilt in even asking for that. But if I’ve learned one thing, it is that people get more upset when I don’t ask for help. In the meantime, we will continue to look forward to our wonderful Wednesday meals delivered by some of the most wonderful people.
