RANDOM THOUGHTS: The Friendship Gift:


 

                  The Friendship Gift

Sometimes we receive friends that don’t stay with us.

It is not that every friendship ends.

It is that everyone walks a different path.

Those paths at times are meant to change directions.

When paths cross it can create magic.

Those are the friendships that are lasting.

Distance and time don’t take them away.

Their stamp has been forever left in your heart.

Some  friends are just good memories.

There are friendships that end badly.

We often get hurt.

But we learn from each one.

It isn’t always obvious, it isn’t an instant awakening.

And some are not for today.

Some lessons are for future days,

Long after the friends have gone.

It may be good or bad,

but it is there and it will show itself.

And it is meant to be that way

Many times a lesson we needed

Sometimes not a lesson we like

But it will teach us something.

Any time we learn we advance.

This makes each friendship a gift.
