What would the world be like if you didn’t have friends? It would be a lonely and dark place. Wouldn’t it? Well, on today’s #givethanks campaign I would like to give thanks to my friends.
I am not talking about the Friends TV show. That was a good show, but I am talking about a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection.
I would say that all of us, OK, how about 99.9% of people make friends everyday. They could be in the form of
- Next-door neighbors
- People at school
- People at work
Here is a picture three friends from childhood.
I have a picture somewhere, tried looking but 28 TB worth of hard drive space, things tend to get lost. But it is a picture of me in kindergarten sitting next to Amy. Reading a book. Here we are all grown up.
In that picture it is lance and Brett we have all remained friends for a long time. I don’t see Amy that often, but Lance and Brett I see all the time. We just went to the Caribbean together this year. We try and get together often.
Shout out to all my friends. I am grateful for you.
I would like to think that I am a friend to everyone, even the people who don’t like me that is on you, not me.
