I don’t know the reason, but consistency is on my mind today. Consistency matters to me. It is a trait I admire.
I think about my blogging friends Stacy and Patti that are consistent in the support of their husbands and their visits to my humble site. I think about Stormy who visits me every day just to see what silliness I have here. There is my blog friend Reach and his allegiance to country, duty and his unfailing support and positive attitude.
I think of my masters track friend Wayne Bennett who has taught me so much and shared his wealth of track knowledge consistently and willingly.
Grant visits here frequently and adds his considerable observation and interesting take on life in a consistent fashion.
I am particularly impressed with fellow blogger Robert Shapiro who labors in benevolence day after day with admirable focus to task, never complaining and always encouraging.
There is Jenn who shows consistency in her devotion to her daughter’s welfare and visits here regularly.
This is a wonderful and underestimated trait. The ability to be consistent in our devotion to duty and friends transforms us from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Yet we often de-value this trait. We think of spouses as boring or unoriginal despite their remarkable devotion and consistency. We complain about mothers or fathers despite their unfailing devotion and consistency. We wish our friends were more consistent despite any evidence that they have ever failed us.
Here is a ‘shout-out’ of positive feeling for all of you that consistently shine your multi-colored and consistent light my way.
My hat is off to your consistency.
It is a trait to be treasured and admired. Even cherished.
And I do.
