The sun sets on another day…
I am looking at a woodpile, ready to be burned. If is full of sticks and small logs, and actually pretty big for a woodpile. As I look at it and the light wanes in the sky (Since clouds rolled in at the last second and took the sunset to a higher level) I wonder what the resulting fire could make?
According to definition to forge is “make or shape (a metal object) by heating it in a fire or furnace and beating or hammering it”, and a secondary meaning in forging a relationship. Perhaps it is the same, relationships are forged through fire and go through a significant amount of pounding to get more refined. Friendships are often the same, built by going through a lot together, and as they do making an indomitable relationship. Perhaps in these times we will forge new and better relationships, more powerful than ever as we face an unknown unknown and push each moment to engage what is now a new normalcy of life.
Look around, and wonder what you have forged? Good friendships that have faced the heat and become stronger? Fantastic friends who will be there no matter what? When you are in the fire, your friend becomes your better friend when the weather it with you and you feel the flames together.
Think about it.
So as the sun sets on another day, it is a super day, a super night comes, and we all will be forging new relationships each day, because the heat is on. Don’t let it get to you and instead forge ahead, and make this your day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be happy every day…
