A friend of mine I met a few years ago has been good to me.

He’s introduced me and connected me. He’s helped me find work.

He’s treated me to coffee and multiple lunches.

He’s given me his time and attention.

He’s a great person. He’s a leader. He’s somebody I highly respect and look up to. I admire him and want to be like him.

I told him I want to repay him for his kindness and generosity.

He said he doesn’t want repaid and all he wants is for me to be happy and successful.

That’s a true friend. I’ll never forget. Patiently waiting to reciprocate the love and return the favor.

One day I hope to help somebody like he’s helped me.

If you’re reading this, thank you.
