Sandra Groom was my one of my first Mentor Coaches and has become a dear friend. Her first visit here was the day after we started moving in, and the whole house was full of boxes. It’s not everyone you feel comfortable with when you’re surrounded with stuff to the point of having to eat outdoors because there’s nowhere to sit indoors.
Sandra is ever loving and accepting, so it was with no hesitation that I welcomed her along with her thoughtful, generous friend Rob Kalka, CEO of World Youth International to stay with us on the weekend. The house is more in order now of course, although showing signs of recent travel and busyness. We had a wonderful time, and Sandra came bearing gifts, as she does, including a beautiful hardcover book “The Complete Pocket Positives”. It contains such gems as “Friendship consists in forgetting what one gives, and remembering what one receives” – Alexandre Dumas, 1803 – 1870. French Novelist.
Another, which speaks to me of the many wonderful friends in my world (who may be reading this) is “Each new friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born” – Anais Nin 1903 – 1977 French Novelist
Thank you to all my dear friends who have brought out the best in me, fanned the flames of possibility, stretched and challenged me to become who I am today. I love you dearly and I thank you.
