I saw this picture recently and it struck me with its truth. I have always felt like people come across our lives for various reasons. Sometimes we may need them for a short time to cause a change in us. Sometimes we may need a helping hand along our journey. But there are times that we may be the change that person needs. I try to be aware of all who come across my path. I like to keep my eyes open for those who come into my life. I can list so many friends who have helped me on my journey, yet today they are not a part of my life. I have come to accept that sometimes they were only meant to be in a part of my life for a short reason. Sometimes the friendship ends due to distance whether that is by location or friendship. But I have grown to realize that things happen for a reason.
