I am going to post about things I am thankful for each day for ten days to keep the feelings of gratitude going.
Author Jim Rohn had a great saying:
"You are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with in your life".
Think about that for a minute..... you are, in regards to your character.... and your soul.... the sum of the five people you spend the most time with in your life. Wow. If that is true, I am a very lucky guy, as my friends are amazing people.
I am fortunate that I have had always had associations with great people. I am thankful for the people I call my friends. They have always been there for me in good times and in bad times. They have provided shoulders to lean on and have shared celebrations. I understand and accept their quirks....and they do the same for me.
While over the course of a lifetime people will come and go, I have ongoing relationships with people I have known in all stages of my life journey. (I only have one close friend with whom I had a bad ending and I regret that situation). I appreciate the long-term and mutually beneficial connections and I openly honor the love of these people who are my friends.
Have A Great Day.
