There once was a redhead called Charlie.
On the pitch he was known to be snarly.
But he found him a bride, and with Aisling by his side –
He now thinks he’s totally gnarly.
The thing about making friends is that you firstly either have to spend lots of time with them, or else have some memorable experiences with them. And then staying friends requires a certain commitment on both your parts to make time to stay in touch.
Charlie got married this weekend, and it was just great to be there for it.
Because he’s a friend.
Among other things, he has helped to change the course of my career, and has always had the courage to tell me honestly what he thought of me and various things I have done over the years.
These are just some of the things that a good friend can do.
Sunday is a great day to reach out to a friend.
