Do you ever wonder…………..
why you happen to meet a person……….
at that one certain time……….
in that one odd place………..
under the weirdest circumstances?
Maybe you just simply smiled at someone and you made a connection. And that person smiled back and said Hi. A simple action followed by a simple word and a new friendship relationship is built.
I’ve had the pleasure on a few occasions to meet a few people by chance. And those unlikely meetings have blossomed into the most wonderful relationships.
My husband! The chances that we’d meet were unlikely but a connection was made and we are living together Happily Ever After.
New friends…..you know who you are! Although we live hundreds of miles apart we’ve established the very strong bond of a true, real lasting friendship.
Old friends……you know who you are! Although we may have drifted apart over the years, as life takes us down different roads and new journeys, we still manage to find our way back to one another, even if only for a moment or two…..always we remain with each other in heart and spirit.
Friends of friends……you may not know who you are but I do! I appreciate knowing you through my relationships with others.
Think of the hundreds or maybe thousands of people we run into by chance. Some we may never see again but there may have been a tiny flicker of acknowledgement. A small catalyst that could ignite a forever relationship.
Think of the thousands or millions of people we will never meet but touch our lives through ways we will never even realize. The person who packages up your Amazon order; or cooked your delicious meal; or cleaned your hotel room; or hauled away your trash; or made your new dress……. Do you ever consider these people? I try to.
There are so many people that touch our lives. So many that it would be impossible to have a meaningful relationship with all of them. But how awesome if we could…….make a special place for each other. And we can and should, even if only to share a smile, a hello, a thank you. Because, as the saying goes, nice matters.
My “people” are so very special. I appreciate each and every one of you. What a delight it is when you reach out and share a little piece of yourself and suddenly a new relationship begins to blossom……
Life is a journey and the people we meet along the way become a part of our narrative……..in ways we may or may not ever know. Seek out and embrace the good in each and every interaction. The life you live is your story, the people you meet are your characters, each day is a new chapter. Make it a best seller!
Peace Love Joy
