This blog post by a friend directed me to this one about signs. The author argues that 1) it would be a lot easier to help and love each other if we all wore a sign around our neck stating what's going on in our lives and 2) that we do--in a way--wear signs like that.

Ever since reading that blog post, I've tried to look more carefully for signs and just jump in and help. Don't ask, just show up.
Yet it leaves my jaw a little slack, when I'm reading signs and helping, and then others make comments that are full of judgement to the very people I'm trying to help. The signs seem so obvious. What to do seems so clear.
So I leave with the same plea as Melody.
