A goodbye note

My family got to figure out 3-way calling last night with me after I had a long talk with J.  I’m sure you will understand the ‘Goodbye’ part of my title as you get to the end but I really hope you read the entire post and think about those special people who have come into your life and made an impact.

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that 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 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.

Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or whether you are a lifetime.

Thank you for my season with you Jamison.  While I wish it would have been for our lifetime, I lived that season with you just as our ring said “with no regrets”.  Be happy with the path that you chose and know that I will always have a special place in my heart for you.  God be with you.



  1. Oh wow. I’m so sorry to hear that. 😦 Long distance is hard, and whether it was coming anyway or not, still, ((((hugs))))
    I suppose that means you don’t have anything to pull you back to Pelican now, do you. Well then, wherever I move to next, you should just move there too. 🙂
    I started working on a gift for you last spring. Just a little something I thought you’d like…it’s a bit baby oriented though (based on our discussions at the time). Perhaps I should save it for someday…or perhaps I should just get it finished and give it to you sooner. It involves hedgehogs, so it’s definitely meant to be yours.

  2. I’m very sorry to hear about your sepperation. I know that is never easy, I hope you’re doing well. We’re praying for you. Take care of yourself. Koira says hello to Sisu.

  3. You are so solid and wise even during your toughest times. I’ve been thinking about you all day and am sending you many happy cheery distracting thoughts. Just remember: Pie in a Jar!

  4. […] the way I had planned, but always, in the end, good things have come from it all.  Want proof?  Here was an ending…And Here was a new Beginning.  I am nowhere near where I thought that I would […]
