“I seek to be the best friend I can be to those who have befriended me.
How often I take for granted the love that is shown me by my friends. I’m reminded today that our mortal lives are not forever, and that our friendships on earth are but fleeting gifts.
May I remember to listen more, and say, “thank you” and “I love you” more to my friends. May I seek to understand what others are feeling, before telling them what I am feeling. May I be a less selfish friend, today and always.
I place in Your hands
My relationship with my friends.
May I be a better friend,
More supportive and understanding
And giving and compassionate.
Thus may my relationships
Fulfill their purpose
And make all of us whole.”
Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “A Year of Miracles.”
ANITA JOYCE SKOCZ is a storyteller who resides in Central Florida. She credits her passion to her father, who dazzled her imagination as a child with his gift to weaver a tale. After a diving accident in 1978, Anita left the travel industry to journey the inner roads of her soul. The riches found on those adventures inward come to life in her children’s books.
Anita’s books, “Crystal Star Angel” and “Kite Tale,” were inspired by the loving relationships her father had with his grandsons.
From Where I Sit is a blog where Anita shares her life’s stories, or comments on current events from her soul’s perspective. Her insights can evoke laughter as well as take one on a reflective journey. In any case she hopes you join her each Wednesday for a new adventure.
