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. 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.
Riding time is upon us again! (In MI we're saying FINALLY!)
It takes place May 16th - 18th, the Blessing being on the Sunday.
Taking roll call to see who is camping out at my cabin in Irons which is 17 miles north of Baldwin.
Yes, Sweetcheeks, you can have the guest room! However you must make your own bed as it's the maid's weekend off! LOL
Taking a head count!

Please keep my friend Annie in your prayers. Her son aged 27 was found dead in Raleigh, NC on Tuesday at the tender age of 27. Andrew Britton had been making a name for himself in the international thriller genre with the publications of THE AMERICAN, THE ASSASSIN and the newly released THE INVISIBLE, which continues the exploits of CIA agent and counterterrorism operative Ryan Kealey.
As a young lad, Andrew used to march in the parades in Grand Rapids with my children. One of the most renowned of all St. Patrick's day parades was when our children marched side by side for the IRA prisoners "The Birmingham 6".
May God help you through this Annie, my dear friend.
God rest his young soul.
LA Feile Padraig aoibhin to leir!
Wishing one and all a happy St. Patrick's day.
Pugmohon, go drown those shamrocks love.
celticmaiden throw a pingin in the Liffey for me. :)
Angel hope you made it home to Baile Atha Cliatha for the big day.

A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him.
She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a hot cup of coffee in front of him. He appears to be in deep thought, just staring at the wall.
She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of his coffee "What's the matter, dear?" she whispers as she steps into the room, "Why are you down here at this time of night?"
The husband looks up from his coffee, "I am just remembering when we first met 20 years ago and started dating. You were only 16. Do you remember back then?" he asks solemnly.
The wife is almost reduced to tears herself, just thinking how caring and sensitive her husband is. "Yes, I do" she replies.
The husband pauses.
The words were not coming easily. "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car?" "Yes, I remember," said the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him.
The husband continues. "Do you remember when he shoved that shotgun in my face and said, "Either you marry my daughter, or I will send you to jail for 20 years?" "I remember that, too" she replies softly.
He wipes another tear from his cheek and says... "I would have gotten out today."

Leap Year has been the traditional time that women can propose marriage. In many of today's cultures, it is okay for a woman to propose marriage to a man. Society doesn't look down on such women. However, that hasn't always been the case. When the rules of courtship were stricter, women were only allowed to pop the question on one day every four years. That day was February 29th.
St. Bridget's Complaint
It is believed this tradition was started in 5th century Ireland when St. Bridget complained to St. Patrick about women having to wait for so long for a man to propose. According to legend, St. Patrick said the yearning females could propose on this one day in February during the leap year.
Sadie Hawkins Day
In the United States, some people have referred to this date as Sadie Hawkins Day with women being given the right to run after unmarried men to propose.
Sadie Hawkins was a female character in the Al Capp cartoon strip Li'l Abner. Many communities prefer to celebrate Sadie Hawkins Day in November which is when Al Capp first mentioned Sadie Hawkins Day
There is a Greek superstition that claims couples have bad luck if they marry during a leap year. Apparently one in five engaged couples in Greece will avoid planning their wedding during a leap year.
OK, BK girls tomorrow is Feb 29th! Snag those Harley dudes!
Shamus and Murphy fancied a pint or two but didn't have a lot of money between them,
they could only raise the staggering sum of one Euro.
Murphy said 'Hang on, I have an idea.'
He went next door to the butcher's shop and came out with one large sausage.
Shamus said 'Are you crazy? Now we don't have any money left at all!'
Murphy replied, 'Don't worry - just follow me.'
He went into the pub where he immediately ordered two pints of Guinness and
two glasses of Johnny Walker.
Shamus said 'Now you've lost it. Do you know how much trouble we will be in?
We haven't got any money!!'
Murphy replied, with a smile. 'Don't worry, I have a plan, Cheers!' They downed their
Drinks. Murphy said, 'OK, I'll stick the sausage through my zipper and you go on
your knees and put it in your mouth.' The barman noticed them, went berserk,
and threw them out. They continued this, pub after pub, getting more and
more drunk, all for free.
At the tenth pub Shamus said 'Murphy - I don't think I can do any more of this.
I'm drunk and me knees are killin'me!'
Murphy said, 'How do you think I feel? I lost the sausage in the third pub!
