People will come into our life for so many reasons. You will form relationships with people you work with or go to school with. Relationships are made at church and at many groups and clubs that people are involved in. Running a boarding facility is a little different that as the barn owner you are the one in charge. You are the one that sets the rules and the one that enforces the rules. That has been where the relationship can get strained and you will always look at it from a business point of view and the boarders will always look at it from a client point of view. When you are able to find a middle ground as the barn owner and still have a friendship with your clients, that is when you have found a healthy balance and truly wonderful friendships.
Relationships come in many different forms and I pray that your relationships with your clients are lifelong ones.
Ephesians 4:2-3 NIV
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
