Buddha, Best Friendship

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best friendship.” – Buddha

I wanted to start this year’s posts with this one specifically because as people; we pursue health, wealth, and friendships … along with family, these are the best parts of our lives. Health is often a blessing from our genetics and the miracle of modern medicine. Wealth is much more than money. As for friends …

I have very few friends that fall into the category of life long, best friends; there are 2, my brother Rob and Jonas. Admittedly it took me becoming an adult for my friendship with my brother to really be a friendship. Jonas and I met on the first day of 9th grade in a DOD school in Osterholz Germany. It took a major fight and apologies for things to really be able to settle into a lasting friendship. It is now 26 years later and we get our families together as often as occasion permits. We sometimes take our wives and sneak away too.

I also have good friends that I spend the day to day of life with. Men and Women that in time have the potential to be life long friends. Be a friend to others and your life will be enriched in so many miraculous ways! Be grateful for the blessings you have and rejoice in the wonder and glory of life.

Happy New Year!
