No time to be your friend.

Driving into Serangoon Gardens this morning, I suddenly recalled visiting my Primary school teacher's home some 30 years ago. She had invited a bunch of us to her home for an afternoon tea; she treated us to a chocolate cake she had baked. I turned to my kids in the car and asked, Have you guys ever been invited to your teachers' homes? They looked perplexed - the notion of a teacher being friendly and personable is alien to their minds. They have no time to be my friend, they are just teachers - my 12-year-old stunned me with this statement.

Make time today to be a friend to those God has placed in your path. Waste time with them.
