I have a friend who is like a brother to me. When my wife and I were stationed in Norfolk he spent some time with us. I’m not going to say I’m the easiest person to live with. I do have my moments of not being a good host. However, this guy had a way of making a bad situation hilarious. His favorite thing to do when I got aggravated at him was spread his arms in a hugging fashion and sing the Judds song “Love can build a bridge” in a horrible off key manner. No matter how many times he did it I always seemed to join in singing and got over my aggrevation. To this day if I get upset or irritated, I sing that song to myself.
Love really does matter. No one wins from holding a grudge. Although it took me awhile to learn this, I’m glad I did.
