The special people in your life

Everyone in your life is put there for you.  Just for you.  It is amazing when you think about it.  So many lessons to learn, and so many people to help you learn them.  Life isn’t just about learning lessons, though.  There is so much more!  Those special people in your life have so much to give you.  They are in your life to bring you joy, happiness, and love.  Maybe Patience too. Well, at least I need help with that one!  Nothing is by chance.  I have had, and continue to have, the most amazing people in my life.  I feel so blessed.  I’m still learning (some of us are slower than others!).  And God continues to put people in my life to help me, and bring me joy, happiness, and love.

My sister;  I have a hard time with this one because I’ve had to say “was” since September 21, 2001.  I have no doubt that God hand picked her to be in my life.  Joy, Happiness, Love (and a bit of Patience, too!) would describe Kelly perfectly.  Nothing is by chance, Kelly was in my life for so many reasons and I continue to learn from her life which was filled with genuine love.

I’m thinking about the amazing people who are in, or used to be, in my life because today is Kelly’s birthday.  I am so thankful to have had her in my life.  I miss her and I wish she was still here with all of us…

In honor of Kelly, my daughter made chocolate peanut butter pie.  Chocolate and Kelly went hand in hand.  I know my sister is smiling with us, as we laugh over her mild obsession with chocolate.  🙂

Everyone is there for a reason…  Thank you for being in my life 🙂
