Grateful for the Connections!
“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.” ― Flavia Weedn
While so many different people are walking through this world, how will we know who will stop and stay with us on our journey? There in those precious moments in time we find magic in the connections as the mystery of life unfolds. There in those precious moments in time we discover who will be the ones to leave a profound imprint on our soul. For individuals who began as strangers, after a “synchronistic” encounter, form friendships whose powerful bond has a ripple effect far beyond what is known, whose connection lasts for an eternity, unbroken by distance or the passage of time. That special connection that is made stronger through the growing pains of life; made more beautiful through shared joy in the celebration; and made deeper through compassionate, warm embrace of laughter in times of need. Friends who come into our lives to teach us how to dance to the beat of life’s beautiful drum and who show us how to accept the challenges through the wisdom of grace. Whatever the reason for the connection, we remain forever grateful for the footprint left on our lives that has transformed us, has allowed us to become a better person and has expanded our heart’s capacity to love. For even when we are physically apart, the memory of the connection stays with us forever changing us in a beautiful way! And how thankful we will always be that we will never be the same again.
