There is something said to being among friends! I won’t put any names here, and I know within a few short hours, I’ll be getting a call!
Yesterday, I got a call, one that made me realize what terrific friends are out there to be had, not only in one instance, but in several yesterday. What a wake up call … if we pay attention to the little things.
The beautiful woman, who made us dance!
The kind gentleman who told us even if it was overcast, what a glorious day it was to dance, as he sipped his lemonade!
The old friend who gave us many wise words that have meaning for all. Here is only one line….(When you point a finger at someone, stop….look…. how many fingers are pointing back at you??)
The first text message wishing me a happy birthday from someone whose sense of humor is over the top.. go look at urbandictionary.com, he’s expanded my vocabulary.
The friend that said he left me a voice mail singing me happy birthday, which I never got, and not sure I believe he did, but I could actually use that as a marketing piece.
Lastly, but not least, the friend that called and called me a dumb ass, when HE didn’t know when my birthday was! That friend called to talk about some issue’s that could have turned to larger issue’s, for that I thank him!
This is where friendship becomes a bridge in your life, and you realize there are people out there that are willing to put themselves, their troubles and their joy on the line. Concern over fallout, of issue’s in our lives, of emotions that we may be struggling with, of situations that don’t make us look the best when exposed.
A garbage can is a garbage can, no matter what you choose to use it for, it holds our trash!
Friends don’t see it that way, it’s all of that, the that’s that draws one to a another, the good, the bad, the ugly and of course the joy we feel when we know we are loved, in every way, shape or form.
This was an original sketch that was on put on the chopping block for Children of Fallen Riders, the one that made the cut for the T-Shirts can be seen below, but I thought it a good one to go with this post.
Lend a hand…why? BECAUSE you can!
Yes, Buck, Mickey & all anyone else that would like to chime in, I am one of the worse culprits of taking help. My strong suit is giving it, I have now worked for two months on the COFR project, it’s brought some interesting folks into my life.
I am not a rider, but have listened to some stories that raised the erector pili’s (look it up), and have heard the passion in several voices about the cause. This is not a post to push the cause, it’s a post to push lending a hand, no matter what or where you do so, you will walk away with a sense of pride and satisfaction.
It’s all about learning, walking away with an education on something you know nothing about. Forming new networks, whether in your everyday life, or online, there is a plethora of people out there that can help, IF they so choose.
Realizing that what you hold passionate, other’s may not, but you know…respect them for trying!
There are those that step up to the plate, and there are those that just sit in the dug out. Do you want to be in the dug out all the time? Or do you want to get up to bat and give it your all?
I am not sure where you can find a driving force but when you look deep down within yourself, you can find something to put your all into. Why is it, that so many people seem to be putting their all into Negative B.S. ? Move on folks, and spread your wings, be happy for someone. Learn from someone, take a chance and put your B.S. to rest!
If you don’t, it will come back to you someday, in some way and you may have just bitten off the hand that holds your fate..
Soul-to-Soul and TechJaws together are raising money to support Children of Fallen Riders, an upcoming charity event being held on September 13th, in Fox Lake Illinois, called The Magic Carpet Ride.
Bikers come from many walks of life from business men to blue collar workers. No matter what kind of person you are the wind through your hair and the two wheels beneath you are like no feeling that compares.
Bikers are husbands, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters and friends. When the loss of any one of those happens there are people left behind with financial burden. Children of Fallen Riders support those that are left behind and we are asking you to reach down in your heart and donate to this great charity. Whether it be a $1.00 or $2.00 every little bit counts, you can make the difference.
Whatever amount you donate, your name and a permanent link to your website will be placed below as a thank you from Soul-to-Soul, TechJaws and Children of Fallen Riders. (Please do not forget to provide us your website when you donate)
