A Season In Your Path

In what seems like a completely different lifetime, I used to sing… not for money, but in front of an audience. One of my favourite tunes was called “A Season In Your Path.”

I was touched by a phrase I once read that said “People come into your life for a moment, a reason, or a season.” Nothing lasts forever — the thing that matters is what we do with the time that we have been allotted. Make a positive difference. Learn to build up instead of tear down. Be a catalyst for improvement.

It’s on days like today, when it was chill, the wind was whipping the leaves off the trees and blowing them down to oblivion, when I came to realize exactly what my grandmother, whom I lost last month, meant when she said that “the older you grow, the faster time goes. There is no holding back the hands of time.” She was a wise woman, on in her 85 3/4 journeys through the calendar, she saw many emotions — from elation to heartbreak. She was the kind of sturdy stock, however, that always gave thanks — even when someone she loved died. She didn’t give thanks because they passed on, she gave thanks for the time she had with them. Her… season in their path.

Let someone who’s in your “season” know how much you care about them. Better yet, let your actions magnify and amplify your true heart’s voice.
