Remembering a friend…

This is my favorite…you came into my life for a 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 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 or people involved; 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.

Kenneth, you came into my life at a time that I needed you the most…you spoke to me and I heard you.  I don’t know if you   ever knew just exactly what you did for me but I will NEVER forget what you did for me nor will I forget you!

Happy Birthday, my friend!

Love you forever,

Melanie

    Here in our area, we have a lot of people in the service. some go to our church, and they come for three years and then they leave again to another place. So we see a lot of that around here.

    But I have a life long friend, her name is Judy, Your dad was best friends with her brother Jerry, and Uncle Ron was friends with her younger brother Ron. Judy has been my friend for over 50 years. We are like sisters because we never had a sister. Anyway we share a lot of things together. Even when we are far apart we still call each other every other week and talk to see how we are both doing. And the funny thing is we both experience some of the same things too, and when it happens we give each other encouragment and pray for each other when something is happening. I do have a post about her I probably wrote it last year.

    • Aunt TJ, I have a friend like that her name is Stephanie. We are pretty much inseparable and are often asked if we are sisters. We’ve known each other since high school. I am her caregiver now, because she has been sick the past three years, so I get to see her five days a week. She is my lifetime friend.

      Kenneth, passed away about five years ago. He is David’s youngest brother. He is the reason David and I are together, he introduced us.
