Relationships. They do not care who you are or where you live. They do not care if you are a doctor, a dentist, or an elementary school teacher. They do not care if you drive a BMW or if you just sold your car and bought a bike with a basket dwindling from the handlebars. Relationships can consume your inner-most feelings and thoughts, and in a second, turn around and watch you crumble under the wreckage that was once was a solid wall and took your breath away. But, if you are smart enough to let them, relationships will transform you into something magical. Not all relationships are created equal. They come in all sorts of packages, from the mailman with the knee-high tube socks to a black and white dog who cheerfully awaits your arrival after work each day.
