Why did you pass my way?

by Christine on June 19, 2010

Someone sent me this and I loved it so much I wanted to share it:


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.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

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.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

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

– Chrissie

Kia ora Chrissie,
I read your bebo page with interest as we share the same hapu of Te Whakatohea iwi,which has jogged my memory back to my childhood,growing up in a little brown whare under a big plum tree next to the tennis courts,not too far from the Pa,of cause just across the paddock was the Otara river.We became townies when I started school at Opotiki Primary,but come summer time my brothers and sisters and I would make the trek back to the Otara river and that plum tree.Many names of whanau that lived around us at the time are racing thru my mind but my computer skills are just not quick enough to type them down before they’re gone back to memory land.All childhood memories are great individual treasurers,but I sometimes wonder,was my early years growing up down at the pa better than how my kid’s grew up?or my moko’s are growing up now?Was growing up Maori any better than growing up here in Australia?Maybe,?maybe not?.Four years ago my two girls took their babies home to meet their Nanny Bella and last month my youngest took her two kids home to meet Nanny Bella,so even though I didn’t force maori on my kids,the maori way is still there.As my brother John said to my youngest girl who was a wee bit whakama about not being able to speak maori,”You don’t have to know how to speak Te Reo to be maori,it’s what you feel inside your heart.””Well Chrissie,thank you for allowing me to use your page to bring this all out on paper.Ka pau te hau.Ka kite,Na Wharetu Williams.

Wharetu it is so nice to get your msg and hear about you kids respecting their Nana and never mind about Te Reo, it’s always going to be there since our new generations gave it new life and we learn it when it’s appropriate to a time in our life. Well I swam mostly in the Waioeka River coming from that end of town but we used to love going to Otara . And oh, the plum trees – I hear you. Still a few around those stop banks but mostly on private land. Take care Wharetu – Chrissie .
