Through we all made friends from those two marriages and my third and fourth marriage. I even had stepchildren and their children and even my own grandchildren. But at the same time the circle slowly started to get less as the children moved into a circle of their own making with their own family and set of friends.
I had a few live in men and one I had a child to and so the circle goes forth and now is less as it should be when one leaves the nest for another circle of their own making. I moved so many times that what friends I had are no more and so my circle got less and less as family and relatives passed away and friends moved to other states.
Now it is my time to make a new circle of friends and maybe in time a new way of life. We must all pass from one part of the circle to another as we grow older and find we have less of all things in our life. One thing is to have real true friends that one can really enjoy and spend time with. To have a companionship and become more of a an out going person. Life is short but what we do with each day matters in everyone life that surrounds us.
I have learn to forgive and let go and to know my limit of doing things for others. Now I will be able to enjoy things and not worry about the circle of life or lights as they grow smaller in time. the circle may get a lot smaller as time goes on but true friends are the ones who stick by you no matter what happens. God is in control of my circle of life and He will move it back and forth as He see fits. Families die out and also more come into one life so the circle can reach out and bring forth or it can take away. This is what the circle of life is for me.
I was blessed with four wonderful children and had to learn about being a mother and so forth witch is all apart of life. I learn to be friends with parents that had children my children played with. We moved many places and made different friends as we went and the circle expanded. Relatives came into our lives that made a big difference to my own way of thinking. Men in my life came and went at different times but from this and the mistakes I made my own children grew into adults who are wonderful parents and who have a love for others and those around them. They now are apart of their own circle and have families and friends. Even the two single ones have a better life than I ever had as a child or adult for this they are blessed with wisdom and hope for brighter tomorrows.
Faith and belief in a higher Spirit, Lord and Savior bring all things forward in life and Hope is there for each of us if we reach out and take it. Knowing where one is going as one phase of life leaves is another goal we must face as we travel along life path. We each must find our own way and travel the dirrection that is best for us whatever that may be and lead to.
