(written on the eve of my birthday)
When we come across people in our lives, we sometimes forget why and how we met them. If you really think on how you spent your day, do you really see the significance of people around you? Or are we so wrapped up on our daily routine and responsibilities that we never really sit down and think of how we spent our time with people we care about or those who care about us. What is it about people that make them so neglectful of others? Or is it just human nature that we sometimes do not see the importance of a person just because they are always there with us.
We have read several times that “people come into your life for a reason” – vague but true. I am always grateful for those people who I have met along the way and left a huge impact in my life. I have been extremely fortunate that I have always met the right people at the right time, at the right moment in my life. I call them FRIENDS for life. I have to admit I was never alone in my successes (and failures) because there were always special people who stood beside me, believed in me, and made sure that I go through life with ease. On this eve of my birthday, I want to say “thank you” to those special people!
Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their labor:
10 If either of them falls down,
one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
