Life has a way of taking us away from loves, and sometimes, after awhile, reuniting us.
Friends, family, co-workers, all come and go in our lives. Sometimes we are separated by geography and moves.
Sometimes we are in the same town and are separated by the direction and busy-ness of our lives. Sometimes they have gone from their earthly life and left us with their love.
Sometimes an absolutely sparkling light-filled moment brings us back together.
Sometimes it doesn’t.
Yet the love and place people have in our heart never goes away. Each one was present in our day-to-day lives for a reason. Each one may leave, for a reason.
Keep the love.
Think of them when you do, in love. Know they left exactly what you needed with you. And you, with them.
They are right where they should be. And so are you.
And, someday, when we are no longer in this illusion of space and time, it will be so very interesting to see how it works, greeting our loves, our friends, our connected beings again.
