tribeca,

Thank you for sharing your story, which was so beautifully put together. Just as Clay touched your life and brought meaning to it, I am sure the sentiments expressed in your blog will touch others as well. I know the loss of your fiance was devastating but here's something that has been able to put some things into perspective in terms of loss of a loved-one. You may already know it since it has been around for a long time and passed around the net a great deal.

A Reason, a Season, or a 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 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 and force you to take a stand.

What we must realise 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.

When 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 hardest loss is the premature loss of a child or parent. While nothing can ever make sense of it, sometimes the idea that they were only on borrowed time to teach us what we need to learn, can be comforting, at least a little!

May you have a Clayfull new year!
