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 -

Taken from LEAN FORWARD INTO YOUR LIFE, Conari Press, 2007, Mary Anne Radmacher From early in my childhood I heard my father recount a story which typified his management and leadership style. The building in which he was a graveyard-shift foreman had sheet metal for a roof.  It was a good thing

Upset About the Hobby Lobby / Supreme Court Decision
Or, are you celebratory of the decision?  In any event, people often inquire what can one person do about such large matters? I offer a sixty word summary first and then in 1051 words I explore more deeply.  My perspective is one of chagrin at the Constitutional compromise that the decision repres

Is There Such A Thing as an Ordinary Day?
I found myself looking about the tasks of my day and I casually assessed, "Well, this is just an ordinary day." I immediately countered that observation.  June 25, 2014.  Unrepeatable.  Never to be seen again. These seconds,as they sweep past, will never whooosh in precisely the same configura
