Who are the special people in your life? Consider taking a moment to name them and identify what is special about each person. Have you ever told them why you enjoy or value them? I was struck recently by how we come in and out of one another’s lives. Some relationships lasting the duration of our years while others are more short-lived. I believe that nothing, besides our relationship with God, comes close to the impact of meaningful relationships. If you’ve moved into a period of autonomy or worse yet, isolation, step out and connect with the special people God has brought your way. We’re not meant to go it alone and there is a high cost to us if we do. Call a friend today and tell him/her how special they are to you. You’ll both share a meaningful experiece together!
