CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
This Q was all about keeping the PAX together and charging up the hill side by side.  I was trying to relate this to friendship and keeping your friends close.

Like the Stone of Wisdom, friendship may be lying right in your back yard and you may never know it.  Your best friend may be a stranger to you, or you may lose him because you didn’t bother to hold him.  Friends must be cultivated by sincerity, frankness, and deeds of affection.  No one can remain your friend if you hide your soul from him.  You needn’t save face before your friend.  Your friend will save it for you.

Life is a chain of little events.  Close your soul to your friend, and he will lose sight of you.  And if you find your friend, give of your friendship and it will return to you tenfold.  Those who cannot give friendship will rarely receive it and never hold it.                             -Dagobert D. Runes

 

Go often to the house of thy friend, for weeds choke the unused path.     -Ralph Waldo Emerson

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Like many of you, there are words I try not to use.  Most of them are the notorious 4 letter variety but there are a few 10 and 12 letter words that aren’t very nice to lace in our communications.  There are a couple of others I try not to use.  One is “coincidence” because I really don’t think there is such a thing.  The other is “proud.”  That’s a hard one to avoid when you have children in the home or in my case, several grandchildren.  I try to work around the thought I am conveying and change the word to “joy.”  Instead of saying I am proud of something they did, I rather explain the joy I have when I see them do it.

Given my penchant for the word JOY, the comments in the link below really spoke to me.  I hope it does to you as well.  (Click on it to open the words attributed to Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney.)

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
  The bliss of growth
  The glory of action
  The splendor of achievement,
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision,
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And tomorrow is a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day!
Such is the salutation to the dawn.
