Are You Lucky Enough To Have A Friend Like This?

You are one lucky soul if you have just one friend like this.

A friend to whom you would answer, “YES,” without reservation, before

you even know what the question is.


If you do indeed have such a friend – you might want to forward this to

them with a little note.  A note that says something like, “When I saw this –

YOU came to mind.”


Fortunate, indeed.  That’s the kind of friendship I was thinking of when I wrote, “US: Celebrating the Power of Friendship.”


Such significant friendships can be woven so deeply into our lives – we forget to pause and honor them.  Perhaps today –

you can remember and let them know.


Here are some of my favorite words on the subject of friendship:

True friendship is a plant of slow growth.  – George Washington –

Today I am still close to you in spirit – a little your friend, because I withhold nothing from you.   – Albert Camus –

Being a friend to dogs and men is a good day’s work.  – Bevins Jay –

Raise the Bridge, my friend is sailing by.  – St. Augustine –

The antidote for fifty enemies is one friend.  – Aristotle –

I am your friend, accept no substitutes.  – Groucho Marx –

I Saw My "Shadow" At The Store
I am often in a hurry.  I try to be mindful as I hurry, but still, it's a hurry-up-and-get-the-next-thing-done kind of hurry. And I have lots of "next things." When that hurry-ness combines with anxiety, or concern, or just plain 'ole  tired ...
