If we spend a little time thinking about it, we can always find something to be thankful for; family, friends, health, prosperity. This year as I stop to contemplate what I am thankful for, one of the first things that pops into my mind is my friend Brian.
Brian and I have been neighbors for a few years now. I’m not sure when it happened, but somewhere along the line Brian and I became friends. Brian does love technology, computers, phones, bicycles and I’m not sure why, but he loves a good vacuum cleaner. I guess overall, we have interests in many of the same areas. I have 4 kids, and I think my kids knew before I did that Brian and I were friends. My kids love making fun of their old man, and I remember them joking about “dad’s ONE friend”, or “Dad has A friend?!”, as they would say it with shock and amazement.
I wish I could take credit for it, but I can’t. It’s Brian. He has a gift, or some would call it a talent. Brian knows how to be a friend. Brian is my hero in this regard, and I want to be more like Brian.
If you get a chance to meet Brian, go up and say hello. Tell him what your favorite computer is, and check out his friendship skills. I think you will see what I mean. I dare you to tell him that you have a broken phone, that is a favorite topic with Brian. 🙂
All of us at Seasons of Smiles Dental wish for you a grateful and thankful Thanksgiving, and our wish for you is that you find a best friend just like Brian.
