THE WORLD THROUGH MY EYES

You may see things differently, but this is how I view my life.

A Reason, A Season or A Lifetime

I know material things don't make a relationship. I was just excited to get those things and I wanted to share. We have so much more than what he buys me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, but from what I hear, he's not the kind of guy to buy girls gifts, so it made me feel special. And I'm totally not using him for what he buys me. Those things don't matter. What matters is how he makes me feel and how he treats me, my kids, my family and friends. What matters is how he reacts when I do something wrong, such as accidentally breaking my key off inside his lock. Let's just say, he totally passed with flying colors.
My longtime internet friend Jeff asked me for this a while back, after his heart was broken, I found it and thought I'd post it to always be accessible to him. I have to say something Jeff, love is a very vulnerable thing. If you don't make yourself exposed, you'll never experience such a wonderful thing. Unfortunately, part of being vulnerable, is leaving yourself open to being hurt. And being hurt when your in love is one of the worst kind of hurts and it takes a long time to get over. I think it's better to have experienced love, than to never of had it at all.

Reason, Season or Lifetime

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

Reason

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 act 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.

Season
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
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. 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.
