If There's Anything I Can Do... A Helpful Guide To Showing You CareHelping a friend who's suffered a
personal crisis or bereavement.

"IF THERE'S ANYTHING
I CAN DO . . ."

A Helpful Guide to Showing You Care

by Susan McClelland
and Susan McClelland Prescott

In times of heartbreak and crisis, people we know need our help and support. We have an almost desperate desire to help . . . but we're frustrated in not knowing what to say or what to do. Too often we feel awkward, unprepared to respond, fearful of saying or doing the wrong thing, worried about seeming intrusive or about getting in the way. Just plain at a loss as to how on earth to help.

Instead of putting our concern into action, we resort to the feeble offering, "If there's anything I can do...." We mean, of course, I want to help. I'm willing and ready. But I can't think of how. And that's where the ball usually drops, with a thud.

"If There's Anything I Can Do . . ." suggests how you can offer help when friends need you most. Here are practical suggestions that will turn good wishes into actual help.
