A new me in 2010??

I am getting married this year. Yes I know. I have been planning an invisible wedding on an invisible wedding date. I have not set a date but am ready to get married. It will happen this year.
My fiancee and I have decided to stop prolonging the wedding date. So this year will be the year. We will have been together for 3 years. 1 yr of engagement. Wow, how time flies.
I had a conversation with my bff and we were laughing at how much has changed. In our lives and in our families. Both of my bff have had additions to the family. They are now families of 5, when it still is just the 3 of us. My other bff got married this past year too. I am in no rush to do things. I am letting things happen. Because to me, things happen for a reason.
Have you ever read, the Seasons poem?

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do. When someone is in your life for a REASON, It is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. 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 or out 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 it is now time to move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON, It is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may 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; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (any way); 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......

My bffs are lifetime friends who have always been there for me. I love them very much. My fiancee is one I found and now will become a lifetime friend as well.

To those I had for a season, thank you for helping me get through those times when I needed you the most. When i was down and no-one was around. When all was lost, and I found you.

To those I have had for a reason, thanks for being the reason I am who I am now. All the life leason I have learned. Memories I shall look back upon, and reflect on, and not forget.

And to the rest of you who have been, are with, and will be in my life for a lifetime, we have been through so much. We have done only what life has allowed but we have tested it many times. Thanks for holding my hand, sometimes pushing me, and sometimes just watching. Through it all I know I have you. I found you a long time ago to go through life, many times I called upon you as you were the angel to get me through. For this I thank you. And today as I journey on, I acknowledge you because If change, you change with me. For the new me is only a part of what you are, so to a new us.

Friends I have learned in my life that friends need a thank you every now and again.
So thank you.
