Over the past month, Wendy and I received more than a little help from our friends. I’m happy to say that with this help, she and my father are now safely back in Michigan to spend the spring, summer, and fall seasons.

We had various medical, personal, and logistical issues, and our friends sure came through to help us through some difficult times.


Take the time today to thank those close friends who have been there for you to provide that “little help” that is so often needed.

Make a point to both reciprocate these gestures of kindness whenever possible – and to watch out for others who need a hand, even if those individuals did not help you previously. Imagine how the world would look if we all followed Lennon’s coaching.
