Topic: A Reason, A Season, A Lifetime
I wanted to share a note that I received from a fellow cc friend that I met on this board, several months ago. A very dear gal that lost her husband to cc a couple years back. She doesn't post here anymore, but was a strong support to me the last couple months. She was quoting someone else as she wrote the following. I am grateful to have met her here, along with so many other thoughtful, caring, sharing & hurting people....
"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 person.
REASON: it is usually to meet a need you have expressed, guidance through a difficult time and support, to aid you physically, emontionally or spiritually. They are there for a reason, then without any wrong doing on your part, the relationship ends. Sometime they walk away, or sometime they die. They answered the prayer you needed at the time and now it is time to move on.
SEASON: 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, teaching you something you have never done, but only for a season.
LIFETIME: relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. It is your job 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 letting me be part of your life, whether I was a reason, a season or a lifetime."
