I've been running around like a crazy woman the last few weeks and now I'm sitting here enjoying the sounds of my birds singing, the fan blowing the air around, and a few crickets chirping.
I don't know where to begin. So I guess here is as good a place as any. As you know we've been canning crazy ladies as of late. I've enjoyed that part of life immensely. I love creating something that began as nothing more than an idea. It's part of why I enjoy writing so much.
I'm about to embark on a part of life I've never really considered before. They call it empty nest, but I call it an end of an era which has always been my goal from the start.
I'm thrilled to death on one hand, and nervous on the other. I know that just because children leave home doesn't mean you stop being their mom, but that relationship changes to one of being a mom of adult children out on their own, living their life as they were always meant to do.
I'm excited and nervous more so over where this next phase in life is going to take me. I love the time I've been spending with my sister. Learning new things. Not being afraid to experiment with things. Opening my eyes to new and exciting aspects of life.
I love the idea of being able to explore some interior design changes that will give me food for thought and allow me to clear the spiritual air a bit further. I always do this sort of thing when I deep clean the house. Clear out the clutter both internally and outwardly. So the colder months this year are going to be a real spiritual path for this old girl.
Life has thrown me a few huge curve balls lately. But I've learned to just let things be. Keep my opinions to myself (mainly vent them out and move on). I've learned that things definitely don't go the way I wish they would in this life. I've also learned that sometimes we allow too much energy to go to areas of life where we really shouldn't focus energy at all.
I've had my heart shattered over the past month. I've learned that sometimes people can do the unthinkable and you have to trust there is a reason you are seeing all that is being revealed to you. I've learned if you pray for truth, you will get truths you never dreamed were possible.
I'm thankful I've been able to delve into a ton of work to help me sort out these thoughts and feelings. I'm thankful that a busy mind and body helps heal a broken one. I'm thankful for a sister who not only gives sound advice but one who understands and helps me push forward when I otherwise sink away. One who brings laughter to my soul and knows how to just listen when I need to vent out my frustration. But also understands I don't want to live in that moment, I just need to clear my head and then helps me move on to a better place.
Yes, I guess you could say I've had a lot of things going on lately. Everything at once, but I'm thankful for the patience and understanding that I've been given lately.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
