Quote of the Week

Some people come in your life as blessings.  Some come in your life as lessons.  – Mother Teresa

Many people pass through our lives, some briefly, some longer, and a precious few stay forever.  It is not the length of time that determines their impact on us.  Sometimes a brief interaction can have a dramatic and long-lasting effect such as a kind word or helping hand of a stranger.

Others may bring life lessons in responsibility, accountability, faith, and trust.  Some of these lessons may be painful to learn.

  2. Linda, so much truth here. Some of the painful lessons are also the most necessary, I always think.

  3. Hilary- I agree.

    Talon- They are very necessary, because it's even more painful to keep making the same mistakes.

  4. So true. I especially try to remember this whenever I encounter people in my life who feel more like lessons than blessings. Hehe.
