Skywatch Friday: Endings and Beginnings: Blessings, Both


This morning on Topsail....I drank my coffee and waited for Adella and Clyde to waken so we could prepare for our journey back to Connecticut. I decided not to rush things, to let her get up when she was ready, to walk the beach with her and her pup, to hit the road when we were ready.

While I waited, the sun rose.

I still wait for us to be ready. We never are though. We never will be. We leave because we must. When we return, we take heart, and we move on. We will.

Wishing you the joy of waking to what is beautiful and the freedom to love it every way you can. Happy New Year.
