July 11. Deb Gordon’s Birthday. So let’s start with Happy Birthday to the woman who has been by my side for 38 and a half years.
I couldn’t have done what I did for the last 37 years without her. She has been a rock star and taught me two very important things. Today, on her day, I will share them with you and hope they help you too.
1. See The Good
John Maxwell said “treat people like a 10”. In other words see the good in people and in situations. Deb has a way of doing that in a way I don’t all of the time. I’ve worked to be better at it because of her example.
2. See Both Sides
Deb was always very good at helping me to see the other side of an issue. Too often I would think I had an answer to a problem or issue and she would help me to pause and consider another point of view. I know that she helped me to avoid some potential difficulties by helping me to see things a bit more clearly.
Some reading this will know Deb, some will not but we can all learn from her on her birthday. The lessons she taught me can likely help someone else reading this too.
I am grateful and blessed. I hope you are too.
I’m cheering for you.
