It's not what you know, but who you know.

I was thinking about my last post about cliques and I tried to think of advantages I have gotten from being friends with particular people. Here is a list of things I have gotten from one friend:

  1. My current job = economic advantage
  2. Introductions to new people = social advantage
  3. A really good role model especially in the area of kindness to others.
  4. The world's coolest quilt made out of 70's style polyester leisure suits.
  5. Furniture and kitchen appliances that I still use.
  6. A million good times
  7. Love and emotional support.

That, from just one friend. My place in life is certainly better because of who I know and I will never forget it when I look at people less fortunate. That friend, btw, is Jeanne and today is her birthday and you can bet I am glad she was born.

Happy birthday, Jeanne!

To Lynne, my BLOG friend ;)

"May there always be work for your hands to do, may your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you, may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you."
- Irish Blessing
