We never know the situations people are going through. Today I ran into an old classmate from my second semester here at BYU Idaho. He gestured for me to give him a hug (which I thought was a little strange considering he was married but brushed it to the side because he's an old friend). We started talking and I asked him how about the wedding and how he's been doing. Turns out he had been married for 5 months before his wife passed away. One morning he woke up and she had a brain problem. He took her to the hospital and needless to say she passed away. He had spent a while with family which helped him during this difficult time. It was a good thing that he was handling it and it was good seeing an old friend out and about. We don't know the situations of others and we should lend a helping hand whenever possible, even if all we can do is give a hug or chat with them from time to time. That's my Wednesday thought.
