Make A Friend.............

Make Friends , Not Acquaintances

There is a difference between being an acquaintance and being a friend. An acquaintance is someone whose name you know, who you see every now and then, who you probably have something in common with and who you feel comfortable around.

It's a person that you can invite to your home and share things with. But they are people who you don't share your life with, whose actions sometimes you don't understand because you don't know enough about them.

On the other hand, a friend is someone you love. Not that you are "in love" with them, but you care about them and you think about them when they are not there. The people you are reminded of when you see something they might like, and you know this because you know them so well. They are the people whose pictures you have and whose faces are in your head regardless.

Friends are the people you feel safe around because you know they care about you. They call just to see how you are doing, because a friend doesn't need an excuse. They tell you the truth, the first time, and you do the same. You know that if you have a problem, they are there to listen.

Friends are the people who won't laugh at you or hurt you, and if they do hurt you they try hard to make it up to you. They are the people you love, regardless of whether you realize it.

Friends are the people you cried with when you got rejected from colleges and during the last song at the prom and at graduation. They are the people that when you hug them, you don't think about how long to hug and who's going to be the first one to let go.

Maybe they are the people that hold the rings at your wedding, or maybe they are the people who give you away at your wedding, or maybe they are the people you marry. Maybe they are the people who cry at your wedding because they are happy or because they are proud.

They are the people who stop you from making mistakes and help you when you do. They are are the people whose hand you can hold, or you can hug or give them a kiss and not have it be awkward because they understand the things you do and they love you for them.

They stick with you and stand by you. They hold your hand. They watch you live and you watch them live and you learn from them. Your life is not the same without them.

The Noisy Frog

A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a restaurant if he could use a million frog legs. The restaurant owner was shocked and asked the man where he could get so many frog legs!

The farmer replied, There is a pond near my house that is full of frogs - millions of them. They all croak all night long and they are about to make me crazy! So the restaurant Owner and the farmer made an agreement that the farmer would deliver frogs to the restaurant, five hundred at a time for the next several weeks.

The first week, the farmer returned to the restaurant looking rather sheepish, with two scrawny little frogs. The restaurant owner said, Well... where are all the frogs. The farmer said, I was mistaken. There were only these two frogs in the pond. But they sure were making a lot of noise!

Next time you hear somebody criticizing or making fun of you, remember, it's probably just a couple of noisy frogs. Also remember that problems always seem bigger in the dark.

Have you ever laid in your bed at night worrying about things which seem almost overwhelming like a million frogs croaking. Chances are pretty good that when the morning comes, and you take a closer look, you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.

Dont Cut Corners

A woman making funeral arrangements for her husband requested that her husband be buried in a dark blue suit.

Wouldn't it be easier to just bury him in the black suit that he's already wearing the funeral director asked. But the woman insisted that it must be a blue suit, and gave the funeral director a blank check to buy one.

When she returned for the wake, she saw her husband in the coffin wearing a beautiful blue suit. She complimented the funeral director on his choice of outfit, and asked how much it cost. He said, Actually, it didn't cost anything. The funniest thing happened. As soon as you left, another corpse was brought in and he was wearing a blue suit. I noticed that they were about the same size, so I asked the other widow if she would mind if her husband were buried in a black suit. She said that was fine with her. So I switched the heads.

Besides supreme insensitivity, this funeral director shows us how shortcuts are in bad taste. To do our jobs properly, we must do them completely. We must learn to take pride in a job well done. If we stick to shortcuts we can never progress...

What's the problem with cutting corners? Take a piece of paper. Look at its four corners. Now cut one corner and notice what happens. You've cut away a corner but you also wind up with an extra corner to deal with.

The more corners you cut, the more work piles up. Taking shortcuts and cutting corners is not good for your character, either. You become impatient to reach the top, and are arrogant beyond reproof. This greedy rush towards success can only result in an eventual crash and burn. I've seen many people come and go. Even bright, intelligent and highly educated people begin with shortcuts. Later on, they lie, cheat and manipulate their way towards the top. They use people and do anything in order to advance their careers. They cut corners and make shortcuts. And then the crash comes.

There is no shortcut to success. Not everyone can win the grand prize in the lottery. And even if you do, it's no guarantee you won't live a miserable life. Possessing the money that you neither earned nor worked hard for can never give you meaning and fulfillment. Do your work and do it diligently.

In the Bible, God says a little earning saved through the years will amount to much. And God's Word never fails. So forget shortcuts and cutting corners. Go with the slow but sure way, and strengthen your character, which will always be more valuable than pure gold.
