“No one remembers everything you say. Few people remember everything you did. But no one forgets the way you made them feel.”

In daily activities of every kind, including those in the work context, it’s so nice to be with and among those we care for, and also those who care for us. This quote, and variations of it, have helped me a good deal over many years. It is a thought that has enabled me to feel “with” certain people – almost within their presence – by simply thinking of them. It has continually widened my circle of loved ones to include many I have not seen in a long time, and many, too, who have passed away years ago. And, so, with this thought in mind, I have come to conclude that no one I have cared for, or who has cared for me, is ever truly far away, or out of reach, and no one has ever truly passed away, just so long as how they made me feel, and how I made them feel, remains somewhere within us and our “circle of care.”
In recent days, as a very close friend sits on both sides of the fence of life, teetering at times on this side, and at times on the other side, I thought of this quote. It didn’t take long to once again experience its great gift. I hope you will also come to cherish its considerable and unique contribution to both the sweetest, and the most difficult, moments in life. And, also, to appreciate how eternal you may make others feel.
