This is an oldie but goodie that I have recieved numerous times via email, but it is one of my favorite, so I thought I would share it with you:
People come into your life or a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet 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
They may seem like a godsend, and they
They are there for the reason you need
them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing on your

you to take a stand.

The prayer you sent up has been answered
and it is now time to move on.

Your job is to accept the lesson,
love the person/people (anyway); and
put what you have

relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but
friendship is clairvoyant.
I know why you are in my life and I
love you for that reason.
