forty touches :: 6

tammie bennett's 40touches project to celebrate her 40th birthday

to celebrate turning 40, i'm posting a sketch and short writeup of a moment or a person who has touched my life in a positive way.  i will post each day until i turn 40 in march.  

#6 is ron roach.  my law school buddy.

ron was one of my best friends in law school and he certainly made it a heck of a lot more fun.  we had a friendly competition to see who could get the best grades and it made me a better student.  or at least it made me cram harder at the end of the marking period!

i loved law school and ron's inappropriate and immature jokes added to the fun.  (and got me though some of the more boring classes.)  my friend jen, ron and myself would get into fits of laughter that almost got us kicked out of the library on more than one occasion.  he acted like he didn't care too deeply about most things (other than robin), and he did keep it light on the surface.  but if you ever needed help with something, ron was your guy.

i am so happy that he is now a successful attorney, he's married to his true love robin, and has super cute kids!


see my other #40touches posts here.  

i will be publishing my 40touches posts in no particular order.  i acknowledge that negative moments have also had an impact on my life, but seeing as how this is a celebration project, i won't be posting those.  

also, i am choosing to only mention 40 because i'm turning 40, and therefore i can't possibly mention all the people, places or moments that have touched me in a positive way.  this is just a sampling that i thought would be fun to talk about and include.

i hope this encourages you to reach out to those who have touched your life in some way.
