Endings And Beginnings

All things end. It may be sad when they do, but would you really wish you never knew it, or that it was there once. I have had a few people and things that I loved and they left. They are not coming back from where they went, but I wouldn't change the fact that I met them, that I loved them. I often wonder why they chose to leave or if it was even their choice. If they chose to leave us behind for something else, what could possibly have been so appealing.

When they go it is hard to understand why, hard to let them go. But hear this now. Maybe,just maybe, we are a better person for it. Think of the things you have accomplished without them. The things you didn't have the courage to do, the things you did because you said "For _____!". Even the small things you did for that person you saw on the sidewalk because you remembered a loved one, made that person's whole world change.

One day, even you will leave. But when you go, just remember, if you where kind, if you smiled at least once, made someone laugh, cheered someone up, there will be people who miss you and who became better people because of you. 

And you know what? Maybe the ones who you thought left you behind, maybe they always knew you'd see them again. And in that case, I suggest you tell them everything you did, because the two of you have a lot of catching up to do.

Thank you for reading, because if just one person liked what I have to say, that is what makes me smile.

  3. (It's Brenda) Oh, Ahna. Yesterday was my brother's birthday. He would have been 52. He has been gone 7 years. I miss him a lot and this made me think of him. I thought I would make it through his birthday this year without crying but I found out when I read this that I needed to cry. And you helped me do that. Thank you, Ahna. Thank you for helping me cry so I could remember my brother with the emotion that I needed to.
