I got up, weighed in, and decided to work out. I also wanted to take time this morning before the weekend hits to read a stanza. It seems that on the weekends there is so much going on and it starts on Friday. No, I’m not going out and partying. Nope, I’m grocery shopping, running errands, and doing mom stuff. This is me taking the time to read my stanza.
To his friend a man should be a friend;
to him and to his friend; but of his foe
no man shall the friend’s friend be.
I grew up with my dad telling me some similar advice, ‘don’t be a friend to an enemy of a friend.’ He said there is no loyalty or integrity to be a friend to your friends enemy. I wish more people understood this as there are more backstabbing and fake friends these days. No good can come from such a friendship. Stay true to yourself and your friends. Here’s a lesson for the kiddies.
