It has been said that individuals come and go in our lives every day. That we are given life for a divine purpose. And when that purpose is fulfilled, we transcend to the heavens above, leaving a legacy behind.
Individuals that touch our lives provide us a great gift by giving us joy and memories. Leaving a profound impression that change our lives forever. They capture our hearts by their smiles and laughter. They’ve become us as we’ve become them. And in the end it’s the stories we tell that enables their legacy to carry on.
As their legacy carries on through the essence of time, it’s a strange feeling knowing they are gone longer than we’ve known them. Detailed memories fade to become simple memories. Sounds of voices become softened. Images become still pictures. And when it’s all said and done, you can only smile at the impact left behind.
As the days, months, and years go by we continue to go about our lives. But there is a part of them that we will always carry with us and no one can take that away.
Make no mistake, life is precious. How we touch the lives of others make it that more special. We all have a purpose. It’s up to us to make the best of what we’ve been given. Every day is an opportunity to seize the day. To make a difference. To live life.
Touch the lives of others and “keep those feet moving.”
