Spring ushers in the birth and growth of new beginnings. Summer develops and matures new life in the warmth of light. Fall celebrates life and displays inspiration through color. Winter then rests and builds for the new day, preparing for the next season.
In life we are blessed to have seasons as well. These perhaps are not as recognizable as those displayed by Mother Earth, yet they are just as important. In our growth and celebration we have people come into our life rewarding us with their wisdom and example. These interactions were designed by our creator to aid us in our development as individuals. Some come and leave, fulfilling a single purpose; others, for a time or a season to teach us by sharing their experiences; and last, a select few who participate forever with relationships that endure through eternity.
We are blessed to have each of these interactions in life with those we meet– whether for a reason, a season, or a lifetime–as each plays an important role. The most meaningful is finding those whom we committed to find here in this life, knowing together we would grow. These plans were laid out knowing when and where life would allow soul mates to reunite. Our reunions carry conviction of the soul and loyalty of selflessness. Finding lifelong friends is joyous, necessary, and rewarding.
For those who are yet to arrive or have come into my life for a reason, thank you. To all whom I was blessed to share a season with and to those who lie ahead, I thank you as well. But to those who have connected with me and my family, who will share a lifetime together with us, I trust we will add as much to your life’s fulfillment as you do and will do for ours. Each of you has made my life worth living. Words cannot express my gratitude; nevertheless, here is a simple “thank you” attached to a sincere desire that we will continue to enhance each other’s futures.
