When it comes to Movie stars and scrubbing toilets-What really matters is who you know.

When I was a kid, my family had little money and no prestige. Not very glamorous compared to the movie stars I saw on TV.

“When I grow up I’m going to be important,” I told myself, “Rich and smart. Famous and beautiful.”

News alert. I grew up. Got married, raised kids.

Maybe not so rich. Certainly, not so smart. But, I learned one thing that changed my life. It doesn’t matter if you scrub toilets for a pay check or perform brain surgery.

In the end, all that matters is who you know.

I’m not talking about forming alliances to win Survivor or calling in favors to get a promotion.

It’s all about taking the time to develop relationship with the people around you –

  1. kids,
  2. your parents,
  3. the little old lady down the street,
  4. the people you work with every day.

Bottom line –connection is what matters. Every smile. Every frown. Every shared secret. Every shout of joy.

I Cor. 13 says that love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Hold each moment close and love with all your heart.

Life is precious.
