This afternoon, I had a thought, regarding my former friend. She is just that, in the past. She has to be. She and her daughter are very, very bad news.
As I started to type, I had a thought about her. I may have actually been in that friendship all by myself, but if somehow, some way I was able to leave a “good mark” on her, something that might actually help her to change in some way, on down the road, then perhaps the friendship was not merely total futility.
Each of us, before we pass on to the hereafter, leaves a mark on the world. I believe that means the impression we gave people, the advice we gave people, kindness, generosity, empathy, help, etcetera. Any way that we touch peoples lives, be it through holding an office and doing a good job, charity work, childcare, nursing, teaching, parenthood and a plethora of other ways to leave a mark on the world, these are but a few.
Still yet, there is the other side.......people whom hate, cause trouble, fight, gossip, cheat steal and even kill, they too will leave their mark.
I believe there is still a lot of good in the world. The good outways the bad. Hopefully, as we go through life, making our mistakes but LEARNING from them, we will hopefully get ready to leave this world and be able to look back on our lives and say, “Hey, I am not so bad after all”.
