113 – Best Friends



Story Time with Alf is here!

Every Wednesday I regal you with a story from somewhere in my unusual and interesting life.  It could be funny, sad, serious or disturbing, the important thing is that every story has a lesson.  The name of today’s story is Best Friends, it’s kind of a sad one…but it has a good ending, and a great lesson.

Even though these are my stories, you can apply these lessons to your own life, or perhaps they will remind you of your own similar story and the lessons you learned from it.  Either way, you should be entertained.

As you listen I really want you to consider your own stories, when did you learn these lessons?  Can you remember?  Sometimes digging up your own past can have great benefit, especially if you are made to remember that one singular moment in time when you learned something vital.  It’s almost like learning it all over again. That…is the purpose of these stories.

In fact, I think there is nothing quite so human as the hearing and telling of stories.  It’s how our ancestors conveyed critical information from one generation to the next.  The stories told around campfires the world over are what eventually shaped our species into what it is today.

Today’s story, called  Best Friends, is actually kind of heart wrenching…at least it is for me, still.  It it taught me something very valuable early on in life, as you will hear when you listen.

    I was crying like a baby at this story. Reminded me of what happened to my cat Fred. Im so sorry about what happened and talking about it is a great way to heal and inspire others to do the same. Thank you for this very personal story that pulled at my heartstrings. The message was amazing and I believe everyone will benefit from this story.
