“Some people come into our lives and quickly go, Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts, and our lives will never be the same” – Anonymous
I came across the above saying long time ago. I ponder about the meaning and as I get older, I understand the meaning of the saying because it pertains to our daily lives and the people we come in contact with.
In our lives, we always come in contact with people everywhere, every time. We can meet them in the grocery store and we exchange smile, yet we never know that the smile we exchange makes a big difference in them. We never know if the smile we give them is the thing they need for that day as a confirmation, an encouragement or just show someone notice them. Some friends are in your lives for a moment to enrich each other.
There are people that stay for a while and become part of your lives and then they go away for some reason because the season is over or what they supposed to do is done to bring some encouragements to your lives. It breaks your heart when this happens because they have stamped their footprints in your heart. I see this with friendship and relationship. Just know it was a gift from God for whatever reason that you need it in your life for that season. Cherish the memory and keep that person tuck in your heart but as always we need to move on as the future is ahead of us.
