A friend pairs well…

…with a phone call. It’s nice – and comforting – to be heard isn’t it?

…with a marriage. What/who else would you want to invest and spend your days with?

…with any exchange of currency (financial, social, relational, etc). Win-win is a no-no today for many and for some, taboo. Bob Goff rattled my cage with this thought – “God doesn’t pass us notes, He passes us people.” Let us not forget that it’s in our daily exchanges where most people are passed to us.

Alas, to be a friend and to let those friends that you have know you consider them into this sacred grouping is one of the finest human compliments.

To clarify, this isn’t a scratch-my-back-I’ll-scratch-yours friendship pairing we’re arguing for. What charms and delights here is the I’ve-got-your-back type of friendship.

I hope you will share this with someone that has paired well with your days.

Your Role In The Grand Story

At all costs, be a friend.

We need this more than any other label you can earn, learn, choose, or become.

“Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .” C.S. Lewis

The Friendship of Befriending

“You like to surf? I have a friend that owns a surf shop. You guys should connect. I’ll connect you.”

“You’re looking to sell your home? I have a friend that sells real estate. Maybe you could ask her to come check out your home? Here’s her number.”

“You’ve gone gluten free? I have a friend that shares information like that with me all the time. They just sent me this guy’s web site.

We’ll always share the friendship aspect of a friend before we’ll share how a friends pays his or her light bill or hobbies their time.

Word of mouth is back and 99.9% of the time it starts with “I have a friend…..”

Be nice.
