Life is very much a journey on a very winding path. Sometimes the path leads you in a direction you never
expected, or believed possible. And on your way you meet fellow travelers who sometimes walk alongside you.
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.. 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 may seem like a godsend and they are. 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 end. 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. The prayer you sent up has been answered 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 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. Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Love your entry here. It's very true. We encounter so many people in our lives and each encounter is meant as a learning experience. It's hard thought to put that into perspective when your heart gets involved.
One would think that the longer we live, the more adapted and able we would become to adjust and manipulate ourselves to be prepared for difficult situations. I have found that no matter how long we live, that is simply not the case.
I'm caring for a patient now who has a terminal disease. I have had 1000s of patients under my care and though seeing ANYONE suffer is painful, there have been few cases which have brought me, literally, to my knees.
I look forward to seeing more of your writing. It inspired me to take another look at the reasons why certain people may walk into and out of our lives.
