A Reason For The Acquaintance

It’s true that people come into our lives for a reason. I have had such relationships and have grown from all of them. Sometimes people are there for us and other times we are there for them.

One of those friends was Brenda. She had a sweet spirit that I thought I could trust. I thought I was a good judge of character, and as it turned out, I was. I helped her get her feet planted back on the ground and to have a quiet place to heal from a dysfunctional life that she was escaping.

She is black and I’m white so this was a good experience for me. I was able to learn a lot about her and racism. I can’t believe how close we became. I have not really had a good friend since I was in high school. We did lots of things together, which I missed greatly when she left. I think of the friendship I would have missed out on if I had not invited her to come and stay. We developed a friendship that will last a long time.

She was able to prosper while she stayed with me. I showed her that she had value and that she provided a blessing in my life. I miss her but she was able to return home as a healthier person. She wrote an article titled “Judy’s Wounded Bird Flies Home”. I had made a real difference in Brenda’s life and she had made a difference in mine as well.

I hope you will remember my story when someone comes into your life in some way. Let that experience bless you both.
