Spring teaches me wonderful lessons in life. Even if it won't be long until it is gone again. Here's what I've learned from it.
Some people are like fragrant flowers in spring. They come into our lives ever so briefly and leave behind a scent that remains embedded in our being. They brighten your day by just having had contact with them even if for just a moment. If kindness would have scent, it would remind you of them.
Like when I smell pine, all the best Christmas memories rush through my mind. When I smell roses I think of romantic, moon filled evenings.
Some people, having given so much to you, remain a part of who you are forever. You cannot possibly go through a day without thinking about them. Their beautiful spirit gently nudges your heart each time you hear their name. The very thought of them stirs within your soul like the sweet fragrance of a thousand roses.
People who have come and stayed in bloom through a life time of eternal Spring, are like this sweet scent of flowers. Although my heart is saddened thinking that soon I won't be seeing them anymore, I will not remember them that way. I will forever see a thousand blooms each time I think of them. In the coldest, darkest days of the winter of my life, the memory of them will get me through it all. Even the slightest fragrance, a wisp of "almost there again," will bring a smile to my face and my heart will pound remembering the love.
My God, thank you very much not only for the beauty of the people You bring into my life, but for the lingering fragrance and everlasting memories of ever having loved them at all.
Having their memories and believing in you, means I will have spring forever in my heart.
