Sad, angry, rejected, hopeful, faithful, open,
these sum up my changing feelings
over the closing of a door.
A big life changing shift here
that is both devastating and enlightening.
I see gifts in hard growth,
but challenges run strong these days.
I have faith in the way
things will turn out for me,
a newly single mama of boys.
It was not my choice, but
I am finding room to accept.
Things could change for him, me,
but I am taking one step forward,
one day at a time, yes.
This is hard, but I'm ok.
Most of the time, I'm ok.
Where to go? What to do?
I'm wide open, scary and exciting!
I had been asking in prayer,
to live to my highest potential,
and I let myself be guided.
Fingers crossed, heart open, for AFRICA,
and then? who knows. wide open.
Options include staying in the mountains,
or moving back to midwest, family.
A year in Maui could happen.
Trust, faith, and openness guide me.
Feelings come and go, thank goodness.
It's so helpful to remember often
that nothing is permanent, nothing is.
Doors close, doors open, opportunities arise
out of the hot burning fire.
Sadness and hope, hand in hand.
I feel touched by the Divine.
Thank you for your kind words.
