I'm thrilled that it's spring......

Everything is starting to have that fresh scent of spring, and on every living thing you can see a budding new growth....yipee!

There is a poem I read every year at this time, I don't know why but spring always brings me back to it, dust it off and read it and feel it.
This year more than others the words are more poignant to me then ever. We all make choices in life and those that truly believe and respect you for your choices will always be there, those that don't are like the seasons, they come and go but with valuable lessons left behind.

Seasons of Relationships

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which
it is, you know exactly what to do.

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed
outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide
you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They
may seem like a godsend, and they are.

They are there for the reason, you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your
part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship
to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or
out 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. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now
time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come to share,
grow, or learn. They may 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; those things you must build upon in
order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/
people (any way); 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....
