“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”  Jim Rohn

I heard this quote recently in a class with Alyson Stanfield.   It really stood out in my mind as I contemplated who were the five people I spend the most time with.  DO you know who yours are? 

  1. God ... I start my day with Him; I walk with Him; I talk to Him constantly throughout the day; I rest in Him; I believe in Him.  From Him I have LIFE, LOVE, LIGHT and BEING.
  2. Terry... My husband.  I met him when I was eleven so I would definitely believe he qualifies as a top ranking person. From Terry I have unconditional love, trust, laughter, and that beautiful feeling of "attached at the hip". We are always there for each other.
  3. Lady L... she is next in ranking for time.  She keeps my view in perspective to youth, life, and the importance of priorities and always serving and doing for others. She brings energy to my life and that keeps me thinking and acting young. She offers the simple love that only a child can offer, without strings attached.
  4. Stacey... our daughter. Wow, where to start there. Courage, strength, tenacity and unconditional love. She is a constant. 
  5.  Morgan... our youngest son. Heart, belief in unconditional love for family and friends, would give you the shirt off his back to help you. He does not just reach out, he is there when you need him no matter what.  

The beauty of these top 'five' is the blessing of life walking with them. They hold me up and I in turn hold them up. Without my 'five' I would be struggling.  We are all interconnected. What we say and do affects not just ourselves but others in our lives. Did you realize how much words cut hearts and dreams into shreds? Think about your actions and your reactions in life.  

I told Lady L last week when I taught school I had only ONE RULE in my classroom. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."   If you are living your life with that in your heart, your words and actions...you are living life right.

Make your list of the top five.
