RELATIONSHIPS ARE VALUABLE

Today recognize the value of all the relationships you have, see the gift they are meant to be.

This can be easier to do with the ones we love and hold dear. It's the prickly ones, now those really stretch us. Honestly relationships, no matter whom they are with, challenge our willingness to be vulnerable - that's good stuff. The bond we form whether love, friendship or acquaintance encourage us to become bigger, to become brighter and even bolder people in the world. Bits and pieces of who we are meant to be are discovered through our relationships. We learn so much from one another and as lives are woven in and woven out we find ourselves changed. All the while our life tapestry is being carefully woven only because of each connection. The value can be hard to spot but if we are honest with ourselves somewhere on the journey together we recognize we are different somehow, some way.  

Sometimes the growth friendship brings hurts like growing pains of our youth. Sometimes the growth is exciting, refreshing and nurturing. Trust the journey with another. Acknowledge the value it brings. In fact don’t just acknowledge it, look for it and take note of it. Have faith in the process with a friend, a lover or an acquaintance. Recognize something far bigger and greater is with us every step of the way and with an undying love equipping us for the journey. All is well.
