Honoured to be around these guys

I hit a couple of balls on Wednesday afternoons. Fourteen holes, with guys who are 20 years older than me. We count how many holes each of us win.

This week we evened out at two holes each (three of us) while five holes were blocked with no clear winner. And those last putts were very serious.

And we're all friends but the rivalry is fierce. And unmentioned. But underlying is a bond of friendship - dare I say love?

And these guys help me know what's important in a relationship; truth, respect, forbearance, jibes made with true friendship but with no point scoring.

Every hour I get to spend with these people makes me a better person and I feel honoured in that.

And it gives me the strength to take those values to the rest of my life. As much as I can. Regardless of how uncomfortable it might make others feel.
