If you have ever had to call a
friend in the middle of the night,
to take a sick child to hospital,
or when your car has broken
down some miles from home,
you will know how good it feels
to hear the phrase "I'll be

Being there for
another person is the
greatest gift we can
give. When we're
truly present for
other people,
important things
happen to them & us.
We are renewed in
love and friendship.
We are restored
emotionally and
spiritually. Being
there is at the very
core of civility!!!

Perhaps more
marriages could be
saved &
strengthened if
couples simply &
sincerely say to
each other "I miss
you." This
affirmation tells
partners they are
wanted, needed,
desired & loved.

Consider how
ecstatic you would
feel, if you
received an
unexpected phone
call from your
spouse in the
middle of your
workday, just to
say "I miss

Respect and trust is another way of
showing love. It conveys the feeling
that another person is a true equal

If you talk to your
children as if they were
adults you will strength
the bonds & become close
friends. This applies to
all interpersonal

Maybe You're Right
This phrase is highly effective in diffusing an argument and
restoring frayed emotions. The flip side to "maybe you're right"
is the humility of admitting maybe "I'm wrong". Let's face it.
When you have a heated argument with someone, all you do is
cement the other person's point of view

They, or you, will not change their stance and you run the risk of seriously
damaging the relationship between you. Saying "maybe you're right" can open
the door to further explore the subject, in which you may then have the
opportunity to get your view across in a more rational manner

Please Forgive Me
Many broken
relationships could be
restored and healed if
people would admit their
mistakes and ask for
forgiveness. All of us are
vulnerable to faults and
failures. A man should
never be ashamed to own
up that he has been in the
wrong, which is saying, in
other words, that he is
wiser today than he was

I Thank You
Gratitude is an exquisite form of courtesy. People who enjoy the
companionship of good, close friends are those who don't take daily courtesies
for granted. They are quick to thank their friends for their many expressions
of kindness. On the other hand, people whose circle of friends is severely
constricted often do not have the attitude of gratitude!
