Help with Hands

Hands folded at Sunday dinner. Southern
pride shown through prayer. Cussin’
your cousin under deep breaths. What
is that loser doing here?
He belongs to Jesus.
Everyone needs a little help. Embarrassed by
your words, he leaves and fixes
your tire
as he walks


  1. Everyone needs a little help....
    Short..simple but quite Good!!
    With All Best Wishes!

  2. Gorgeous! I remember this. Did you post it on Facebook or read it at a reading? I liked it even better the second time around. :)
