Definition of an Ally:
– to combine or unite a resource or commodity with (another) for mutual benefit.
Allies or Friends can come in many forms. They might support you at the end of the phone, in person, or just by you knowing that they have your back. They make life easier and more pleasant.
You don’t need an abundance of allies, even one or two makes life bearable. Maybe your best ally could be your own self.
Today’s Sunday Sayings focuses on Allies.

Something to Ponder About
Several years ago, I became fascinated with traditional proverbs and
sayings, their metaphorical layers and the many different
interpretations found within those succinct few words. I marveled at
their ability to transcend race, religion, opinions and age.
Mostly anonymous, they are a portal through time to generations past and echo a diverse range of cultures, and the experiences of many lessons learned and the wisdom from thousands of lives already lived.
They offer us knowledge; knowledge that is passed to us in much the same way relay runners might pass a baton. Once it’s handed over, it is up to us what we do with it and how we pass it on.
