Reason, Season, or Lifetime

A friend of mine posted this on Facebook recently and it really hit close to home. I'm fairly certain I've read it somewhere before, but it was especially relevant right now. I'm slowly coming to terms with who is/was in my life for a reason, or a season, but more importantly, I'm cherishing those who I know are in my life for the long haul. 

Reason, Season, or 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 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.

Happy birthday to me!! ...and George Clooney. 

Speaking of Mr. Clooney, darn him for dashing the hopes and dreams of so many women by being happily engaged! There goes my birthday wish...

While I would love to be out on a grand birthday adventure, sadly, I have to work. Those are the breaks sometimes though. I haven't accrued much time off yet, and since I'm still fairly new, it just doesn't seem right to ask. Even if I could. Which I probably could. 

Anyway, it doesn't matter because I'm having extended birthday celebrations through the weekend and then some.  I am going to be stretching this out for as long as I can!
