Technical Challenges–Life’s Little Glitches

Technical challenges are a part of life!  Well, today’s post, part of which I’ve reproduced here as kind of a test, has had a technical challenge.

If you are seeing this on Facebook, the video will play.  If you are receiving this blog in a ‘reader’ and receiving it as an email, the video may not play.

This became apparent to me a few minutes ago.  I personally receive my blog each day in Google Reader, an option on the site, and I receive it in an email.  Rarely do I click onto it to check it out, since I double check everything before I post it.  Ironically I did click it today in my email and learned that the video would not play through Google Reader.  A message indicating it was a ‘Sony Entertainment video and I should check it out in YouTube’ appeared.

There are numerous videos in YouTube with this poem and the one I chose was to the theme of Forest Gump, which apparently is a Sony Entertainment picture.  So, for those who can’t see it in their reader in their email, check it out on my Facebook wall.  Or perhaps it showed up on your Facebook wall.

Enjoy!  And thank you Sony Entertainment!

Friends: Here For a Reason, a Season Or a Lifetime?

Recently I received an email from a friend with this poem.  Thanks Michele.  It’s something I had seen a while ago and perhaps you have too.  I found it in video form and have posted that below as well.

It just reminded me of how life is.  And maybe this is a reminder for you as well.  By the way, the email mentioned that we should pass this along to our friends.  I believe this is the best way I know of to do that.  Enjoy, and feel free to share it with your friends and anyone who means something to you.

Reason, Season, or 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 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.
