My Beloved Son

Monday, April 16, 2012

I posted something I discovered about friendship---If I would have found this a few years ago, I would have read it----smiled and not truly believed in full the depths of meaning it contained...the seasons, the reasons and the lifetime friends...reading things like this validate my Faith even more...there have been people who literally came out of nowhere---stayed a spell to provide whatever it was that we needed at that time---and moved on---perhaps to aide another emotionally ailing family like also taught "us" that it's okay to do the same---it showed us the importance of friendship and many tiers that exist...I guess it all comes down to being kind...I have those who float in and out through the seasons gets busy...but these people check in with us...and we share the love they breeze our way---then there are those...perhaps not huge crowds, but those who think of us daily---those who are somehow "almost" able to place themselves in the lives we live and walk in daily---and provide ongoing support....they have faces that make my heart melt....they have become extensions of my being...lifeline...I wonder if i would be able to walk or stand...or simply breath had it not been for those who supported me...and still---they hold my hand as I prepare to walk on further in this journey, the second part of my life...the one without Adam in it...whether or not you'd been a reason, a season, or a lifetime, I love you all...and will never forget the kindness put forth, I will spend a lifetime reflecting on the kindness of others...
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.

The years of marriage are few...when measured against a lifetime....We have encountered joy....and shared confidence in our future...we have known hope's ending...and have borne the death of dreams...
We---together have been diminished...........
Even minor aspirations have eluded our grasp in the cruel shadow of the loss of our son....
yet, we still share our lives, and though the brightness we once knew has fled...
We have grown enough to sense a return of laughter---and uplifting to shutter the dimness, to remind us that tomorrow will come and dreams may be born again....<3

This is who we is the love we share that allows light to permeate back into our world....I love you Teddy
