“There is no such thing as a “self-made” man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken a word of encouragement to us, has entered into the makeup of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.” George Adams
A dear friend of over 40 years lost his wife last week. He has been there for me in every way over these four decades. He has been a coach, a mentor, and a business partner. He allowed me to come and be with him for a few days, which was both an honor and a privilege. I only wanted to support and listen generously and to fill some of his space, remembering special times. It felt like I made a slight difference in a difficult time. I feel blessed in many ways.
