Definition: To burst or break forth with a sudden and transient flood of flame and light; as, the lighting flashes vividly; the powder flashed.
Everything could be over before you know it. All the love, worry, happiness, and loss. Here one day, gone the next. Sure, most of us aren’t on death’s door, but you just never know when you won’t see a loved one again, or even someone like your butcher or your hair dresser, or the lady who smiles at you when you’re in line with your groceries at 1:20am. You never know when they might not see you again. You know the saying, “Gone in a flash.”
Life has these amazing moments. They might be little – like a spark – or big – like a falling star. They might tell you something, they might light up a way through a hard time.
Could be a coincidence. Could be divine intervention. Could be a hundred things. Could be nothing.
People are like that too. They may not be “flashy”, but there is something about them that burns – either like sparks from hot embers, or like a sudden burst of light. They’re fiery individuals, who once met, will change your life.
Either way, you are transformed.
