This week I moved from the house that I have lived in for the past five years. I always thought that I would have stayed there forever, but one day last Winter I was driving along in my car through a beautiful forested area when lo and behold out of the corner of my eye I saw this beautiful home under construction. I stopped by to take a look, trying humorously to tell myself to go away, but as you see, I couldn’t. Day after day I kept looking for reasons not to be interested in this new house, until eventually I came to the conclusion this wonderful place was right for me.
Moving is painful…..what you come across going through closets and boxes boggles the mind. It almost is like going back in time to see how far you’ve come. Changing jobs, changing homes, changing relationships are never easy steps…..even when you know that the change is for the best. Life is a strange journey…..you never know sometimes when the next turn along the road will occur. The only insight I have learned is to surround yourself with love and the best people possible for you.
As I look through my files, photos, and belongings one thing appears very clear to me…..this newsletter and the people that it touches I hold very dear to my heart. I hope that these essays help you sail through rough waters, as much as you help me through my rough seas.
Bless you all,
