Yeah, it’s tried and true, but my goodness! But who isn’t thankful for great, amazing and wonderful friends?
This year, I have been deeply blessed by a number of friends. I’ve already waxed as eloquent as I can about Michael McClure, so I’ll say nothing more than, “Click the link and read!” Here are some other awesome people I’ve been blessed to call my friend:
Dan is truly a one of a kind person. He is one of those few people in the world that, once you meet him, you realize that he is very comfortable in his own skin. He and his wife routinely open their home to my family and a few others for our monthly small group gathering. Doing life with Dan and his family has been a huge blessing. I could not imagine a richer, fuller time in life, than time spent with Dan and his family.
I was blessed with the opportunity to meet Sue and her family in the Summer of 2009. Through a mutual friend, Dave Webber (see below), we were introduced via that Twitter thing. Eventually, Sue invited me and the family over for dinner with her family. As ever seems to happen when I meet folks from the online realm, in person, she and her family were that much more genuine and real! Sue has been a sounding board, confidant and University of Michigan fan, with whom to commiserate. I only wish that the Talberts hadn’t moved!
This guy is best known for his maniacal fixation on wearing flip-flops. All. Year. Long! I don’t get it, but that’s Dave! Dave has always been a creative, thoughtful individual whom I had the pleasure of working with on a real estate related business a few years ago. It’s a pleasantly welcomed surprise when he contacts me to do some co-working here in the office or the Plymouth Coffee Bean or whereever there is coffee and wifi.
This gal is crazy good with a camera and consistently makes me smile with her photography and loyal friendship. Angela is one of those people that will never let go once you become friends. A few times this year, she was timely with her inquiring on life or made a comment to help bring me out of a funk.
Of course, there are many others whom I could write about as well. Just know that I appreciate every one of my friends… especially this year, 2010. You ALL have meant so much with your support, encouragement, prodding, pushes and general accountability. You help me focus on that which is important.
