Impressions 17 May 2018

Who are the people who’ve made an impression on you in your life? Have they collided into you like a comet streaking through the sky? Have they stopped your breath because you’d never known they were missing from your life? Have they made you stop and take notice, pulling you out of the world you were stuck in? Have they enriched your life such that you know you will never be the same?

Are they the one you cannot wait to see again? To meet for supper? To spend a quiet evening with? To share the chaos of any day in a life? To work for or with? To open your eyes and see first thing each day? To come together with after a long day and listen?

Do you want to remember all the tiny little things that make them who they are? To remember every little moment you’ve had with them? All the times they kept you safe? Warm? All the times they lifted you up? Walked with you? Fought with you? And in the midst of that fight, you still knew that you would not ever want to live without them?

So tell them.
