Relationships last if they come first.
Yesterday as I read a great blog by my friend, Doug Ward, (Fit, Fat and Awesome) I wanted to jump up and help someone in need. I wanted to be a better friend to the friendless. His posts often inspire me to be better.
Then today, I learned of a friend's death. He was someone who was hurt as a child and later he abused drugs. He died tragically after spending time in and out of prison. I got to know him as I tried to rescue him from a life of crime.
His story and Doug's blog got me thinking about being a better friend, a better father and husband.
Doug shows that people come first. And when people come first (before money and even friends), relationships last.
