THE GIFT OF PURPOSE, PLACE............


I wrote in my previous post about what really matters is how we effect one another.  If only everyone would take time to consider their effect on others - if only...............perhaps the assumption here is that we all hope to effect for the good, in kind, lovingly and 
honorably.  Not always the case, I know.  Let's all agree to be aware of our effect on others and that if it is a person's intention  to cause harm, well, don't do that!! DON'T DO THAT!!

Okay, enough ranting.  Moving on to some more gained wisdom.  It is about the gift of purpose and place in someones life.  What a wonderful gift we give to another when we let them know we need them.  Not in an overly dependent way but in a way that matters by honoring their gifts and talents - for that person simply being who they are - and how the place they have in our lives makes a positive difference, offers counsel and solace and understanding and hope.  That they matter to you.  And it is a double gift when you are the same to them and they too hold a place for you and value you and you have a purpose in their life.  
These priceless gifts of purpose and place can lift a broken spirit, heal a broken heart, right a wrong, sustain life, give life, save a life and bring light to darkness.  I think I have made my point - :-)  

For all the people in your life that need you and hold your place in their life dear -cherish them. And for all those that you have a place held dear and whose life is of value to you - tell them, loudly, softly, shout it, whisper it- and know, really -really know - this give and take, this sharing is at the very core of humanity - it is how we survive - it is how we come to believe we matter.  It is how we learn to love ourselves and be loved and love - PURPOSE AND PLACE - be generous with each.....
