keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others.
- H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

One of the greatest titles we can have is "old friend."
We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older.
The problem is we need to start our old friendships when we are young.
We then have to nurture and grow those friendships over our middle age
when a busy life and changing geographies
can cause us to neglect those friends.
Today is the day to invest in those people
we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.

and each of us has the ability to make

or how important we believe we are.

regardless of external circumstances,
is a great legacy for our family and for the world.
Self importance - ego - is not a path to happiness.
