Inspirational Sunday with a Golden Twist

"Friendship is the shadow of the evening,

which increases with the setting sun of life."

--- Jean de La Fontaine

 

 

One of the many aspects of friendship that fascinates me is how incredibly connected we become over time when we genuinely support one another during the course of each others life journey.

 

Like property, friendship is an investment that we hope grows over time. These particular friends I'm writing about this morning have been a special part of my life for more than 21 years. We became fast friends long before I got into the real estate business. Over the ages we became each others wing woman in Corporate America and remained friends. After I left the company and became licensed to sell Texas Real Estate we continued our friendship and they remained true to their own goals to achieve wealth and independence. I consider myself lucky because they hired me for many real estate transactions. In their many real estate conquests for buying, selling, renting, flipping, and finally selling their own home, it led them to fulfilling retirement. For both of us, it has been an incredible journey. 

 

Driving home, knowing I only had 90 miles to go, I had to pull over when I saw what looked like a wing in the sky. Thus, the inspiration for this blog post. Along the country roads, I stopped to savor the beauty of the setting sun and remember all the good things that came out of true friendship that continues to grow and prosper. And then it happened, I discovered the pot of gold, which really is just a metaphor for striking lasting friendship.

Oh yes, those amazing friendships are pure gold. How wonderful that you have enjoyed a good business relationship with them too, helping them in their real estate needs. 

We are heading off to spend time with dear friends next week, and can't wait. True friends build you up and fill you up support and joy. There will be plenty of laughter, great conversations and joy-filled days.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I thirst for true friends and there is nothing better in life to have at least a few good friends who can lift you up with joy when celebrations are due and lend an ear or a shoulder to cry on in those diffult times in life that no human can escape. Friends are our liquid gold.

Have a safe trip and enjoy all the time you have with your very dear friends. Good friends will always boost you up when you need it and listen because they care. 

Happy Sunday!

Friendships are definitely one of life's precious commodities.  They become family.  Wishing you a delightful Sunday...Your reference to 90 miles reminded me of a Johnny Matthis Song, 99 miles from LA.  A

Hi Patricia- we had dinner tonight with friends we've known for over 30 years. If I can leave this world having had the wonderful friends I have, I will leave as a very wealthy person.

That quote really touches me where I am, Patricia.  For one reason or another, I have had contact with people I have known for decades.  We have been having lunches together, talking on the phone, and planning get-togethers.  The last time I have had this much activity from childhood friends and others from long ago, was shortly before 9/11.  I hope this isn't a precursor to something that significant.
