It’s official, beginning this week, I will be bringing you your Weekly Fuel. There’s a lot of “stuff” out there on the information highway and my goal is to provide you with something to contemplate, incorporate, feel inspired about and even pass-on. The Weekly Fuel provides you with fresh perspectives, as well as information and tools to enhance your well-being. This week, we’re talking “friendship.”
Over the weekend, I had a an 85-year old girlfriend over for lunch. We’ve been friends for 25+ years. I was thinking after she left, how cool it is that I have a friendship that has sustained time and our 40+years age difference. I treasure my time with her and appreciate her insights as I venture through a stage in my life that she’s already lived.
It’s easy to have a friendship circle that is made up of people around your same age. However, it’s glorious to have friendships that cross generations. It keeps your mind broad and open to life “beyond you.”
I came across an article from Experience Life titled “The Value of Intergenerational Relationships,” by Joseph Hart. I love Joseph’s perspective on timeless bonds and the value of intergeneration relationships. Here’s your Weekly Fuel.
