My way of saying thanks.

OK This is a lazy way to respond to a chain letter

BUT what the heck !

I 'm sending this to you to see how
many actually read their e-mail.

Your response will be interesting.

Pay attention to what you read.

After you have finished reading it, you will know the reason it was
sent to you.

Here goes:

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime..

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need
you have expressed.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with
guidance and support,

To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.

They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,

this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an

Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.

Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire
fulfilled, their work is done and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has
come to share, grow or learn.

They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.

They may teach you something you have never done.

They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.

Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,

things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional

Your job is to accept the lesson,

love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other
relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life,

whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Send this to every friend that you have on-line,

including the person who sent it to you.

  3. Well done, John. For those of us blogging, I frequently wonder how we think anyone has the time and patience to both blog AND read other blogs, in addition to living the rest of life! I happened to catch your post, as I do sometimes, and I usually don't comment, but I will tell you that I like the "eye" you have for observing and your knack for voicing what might otherwise go unnoticed. I like your blog. :)
