I know I have not been around....Just when I thought I would get things done I woke up about 6 days ago sick to my stomach...that lasted for 5 days.... today is the first day I can actually eat something. That was the worst virus I have ever been through...I would much rather have the flu instead of whatever it was I went through. It felt worse to even sit at the puter for any length of time... Thank God I can see the light at the end of this tunnel.

I have really nothing new to write about because I have been in bed for days...even to get up made me sick. Well I have a bit of inspiration to share with you all just to stay on the positive side here...

I do hope that you all are filled with the spirit of the season and that all things are coming together for you all. Hopefully I will be back to a full swing of things the meantime...Have a TERRIFIC tuesday!!!



Are you a Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime?

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


When people come into your life for a SEASON it is 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.

Stop here and just SMILE.

Work like you don't need the money.
Love like you've never been hurt.
And dance like no one is watching.

Glad you feel better. Take good care of yourself and rest a while. I like your Reason/Season/Lifetime friend/person article. It rings so true. I never thought of categorizing people that way but it makes a lot of sense. It gave me  lightbulb moment.

Ellie, I hope you continue to feel better.  I'm sorry you were suffering and not feeling good.  Wish I could've been of some help as you have to me in the past.

I've always like the reason, season, lifetime ...
