Everyone needs a good, wise friend

I must say that I am incredibly grateful for good, wise friends who give you a good slap in the face precisely when you need one.
I went in to meet Ron, a friend I met at a previous job, full of self-pity and what I felt was justified anger towards God and who-knows-what else that deserved it.

You try coming into a coversation with that attitude facing someone who has just come through cancer and is telling the tale of how, just after surgery, he was praising God.

I have a long way to go, but I think I have been set back on the right path. So, I don’t know that you will ever see this, but thank you, Ron. You are truly a great man, and I am honored to be counted among your friends.
