Thank You For Being a Part of my Life

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

November 15, 2007 8:36 PM - Elko, BC, Canada


My Dearest Manong Timmy and ALL of my Family and Friends,I've been really busy for the past two months adjusting to my new life in Elko. I am still currently (by choice) not employed. I have been on a full rampage (ha ha ha) - doing house chores (major cleaning and interior design and re-organizing). I have learned how to use a sewing machine, I've learned some new carpentry skills (using power tools), (I made a furniture stand, shelves, etc), and some house painting. Done lots of arm and body workout through lifting, carrying, pushing, scrubbing and loved every moment as my project started coming together. I worked of course on a really low budget and everybody at home started helping out too. I found the experience very therapeutic that somehow bonded everyone at home together. Now with the house all clutter free, easy to clean and so organized everyone at home seems so much happier. Now I can call the house that Ron lives in (along with his brother Eric & Tim and Dad Frank) my home too.

Dinner (& My Birthday) Party

We had a few friends come over. Ron, Eric & Tim did an excellent job making dinner. It was a really happy party.

My 32nd Birthday! This is an Ice Cream Cake by the way. Eric & Tim got it for me. Thanks so much!

A Bonfire during the party. With the dance music playing, wine and beer - we all had a great time. Lots of laughter in this quiet little town of Elko.

First snow fall - Winter is here

Today Ron needed to go see the doctor. He was having some aches and pains on his lower back area. It got so bad that he wasn't able to sleep at all last night and this kept him from working today. It worries me.

I was driving Ron's car today on our way to see the doctor and the tires weren't gripping. I was told that the first snow fall is usually very bad. Nearly lost control of the car and it freaked me out. Ron had to take over driving (despite his aches and pains) being the more experienced winter driver.

Snow - I never thought it would be depressing.

Snow - Cold, Gray & White. Makes me sleepy and tired. Everywhere around me in this weather feels to me like sadness. What a depressing season (but that's just me of course).
.
.
.
.

I'd like to apologize to everybody for not being able to keep up with the e-mails and all. I do appreciate all the letters and e-mails that still (thankfully) come my way (they are getting fewer and fewer... but they say that's normal. Out of sight - out of mind. I do wish I can visit again someday, that way I will not become permanently out of sight...thus... you get my point...). I'm very thankful you guys still remember me and I send out my biggest hugs and love. Thanks so much for being there for me despite my shortcomings.


Love you all,
