For Good..

I have met quite a few people in my lifetime.. But it wasn’t until I opened my photography business that I realized how great people are. Don’t get me wrong, I know there are a lot of great people…but I finally ENJOYED people. A lot of people! I have chatted with my clients probably more than they would have liked….I had a lot of years to catch up on, talking wise! 😀

I do believe that people are put in your life for a reason. Past relationships, current relationships…even failed relationships.  I have been around some amazing people. They have changed me and I am sure I have changed them too! I think there is a tendency to take bits and pieces of people you meet and apply them to your own lives. It might be a new thought, or a new way of doing things…It might be a new laugh, or trying a new food.

This song has been saved on my computer for quite some time. I keep coming back to it.. When I have doubts about people in my life or things that have happened… Or when I miss certain people…

I DON’T know if I have been changed for the better…but I have been changed for good…

I hope some of my old friends read or listen to the lyrics of this song..and know that I think about them frequently.

For Good – Wicked

(Elphaba): I’m limited
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
For both of us – now it’s up to you…
(Glinda): I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good
(Elphaba):
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made from what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend…
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
(Glinda):
Because I knew you
(Both):
I have been changed for good
(Elphaba):
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for
(Glinda):
But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share
(Both):
And none of it seems to matter anymore
(Glinda):
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
(Elphaba):
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood
(Both):
Who can say if I’ve been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better
(Glinda):
And because I knew you…
(Elphaba):
Because I knew you…
(Both):
Because I knew you… I have been changed for good…

    It happens every day for me. People come into my life. I share their experiences and in that experience I find a little more of who I am for having known them. You made a difference in my life.

      Awww, well as our second person pretty much that we met in NC, we are thankful that we met you and not everyone was like the guy in charge at the rv place. Thanks for getting us out of there fast, lol. Also rescuing us from the truck situation.. :sigh: You are a fun person!! 😀

  2. It’s a great place to be to actually enjoy life… 🙂
