Make Your Mark

Sometimes people appear in our lives and disappear again quickly. They arrive suddenly and then whisk away again like a frivolous autumn breeze.

Sometimes people show up in the most unexpected ways, and they stick around for the long haul, becoming friends, lovers, family.

And, sometimes, when a person comes into your life, he really leaves a mark on you.

Something striking.

Something memorable.

Something that serves as a constant reminder of that person.

Something that makes you smile a quiet, private smile.

Something that fills your head with bittersweet anticipation.

A mark like that leaves quite an impression.
As does the person who made it.

What kind of mark do you make on people’s lives?
