You can have a short encounter with someone and remember them for the rest of your life with a beautiful memory or it can be quite the opposite. The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them. ~ Maya Angelou wrote
It’s not the amount of time you have with someone, it’s how you spend the time you have. ~ Sissy Bowen
Sometimes it’s because those whom you have known for a long time prayed for them to come into your life with the right message at the time your heart is ready to hear it. ~ Rita Clark
They are in your life for a reason, not a season or a lifetime, just a reason.
Sometimes those that have known us the longest have a difficult time letting go of who we once were. Even harder time accepting who we have grown to be. Time and distance help with that, at times. ~ Sharon Guzman
