Rain, Slush, Snow

Favorite part about Saturdays: sleeping in. So lovely. When I finally got out of bed I had a kind of lazy morning. I did some school work and got ready for work. Then I worked for most of the day. Luckily I was able to get some school work done when work had slow times. But it was actually busier than I expected.

After work we went to a dance. It was just so so. Parts were good. Then I got stepped on...again. That tends to ruin dances for me, haha. This time wasn't so bad. Just a little scrape on my heel. But it hurts. Or I'm just a weenie. Or a mixture of both.

Oooh! I got a package today from mommy :) It was fantastic. A perfect box. Everyone always gets jealous of my awesome boxes. It had heart attacking supplies and boots along with various other suprises. It makes me so excited to heart attack people next month!

The weather today is ick. It was raining when I went to work, but then it turned to snow. Unfortunantly since it had rained so much the sidewalks are covered in an icky slush. I don't like it. I just know I'm going to be the kid that slips and falls a million times this winter. Welcome to my life, haha.

Oh my goodness, I seriously can't think about anything else that happened today. I kind of feel like it was just an average day with nothing really interesting. But it was a good day. Maybe this post feels so short because I slept half the day. That's probably it. And I'm still tired so I'll probably go to bed soon.

AHHHHHH....15 minutes. I have to write for at least 15 minutes. lalalallalallalalla

Last night Megan sent me a text that almost brought me to tears. She is the best friend a girl could ask for. She helps me see myself. Not the me that can be found in the mirror, but the me that is inside. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends.

I guess the topic of friendship has been on my mind a lot. What friendship means. Why some friends stick around while other leave. This is my favorite answer. A poem called 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.

I am thankful for all the people in my life. All my friends, past and present. For some reason you were placed in my life. And if it is just for a reason or a season, that is okay. We will learn from each other and life will go on. But for my lifetime friends, thank you. Thank you for being my friend. I love you.
