There are times when you give those that you care for a listening ear then a shoulder to lean on. You do your very best to be there for them. You go out of your way so that you can meet them at the point of their need. You wipe away their tears. Then share laughter with them. Then help them to dream even when nightmares overwhelm them. Ah, how you trigger their dreams. You then go ahead to hold their hand and walk them towards realization of those dreams. Then once they get there, in that promised land that they had been dreaming about, they clench their fists and hit you on your helpless nose. So when you extend a helping hand, don't expect a pat on your shoulder. Don't be surprised if you get a bloody nose instead. When you help, just do so because its the right thing to do.
