Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

A New Beginning – Again

on September 28, 2021
I'm at the point of a new beginning
I never thought I'd find myself here
My brand new knee is working  fine
And so this is not  about that

My son is planning a move in the near future
He has told me about in the past
He planned to sell his duplex - rental property 
Then sell his own home and move South

I had heard this before and put it aside
Nothing to bother me yet
This time I listened and knew it is real
My tears and sadness set in

He told me this was always his plan 
When they moved here twenty years past
I was in Chicago living my own new life
Never dreaming I'd move back  myself

Then I remembered the wonderful challenge
Facing new obstacles, solving new problems
Building new friendships in the Greenbriar Apartment
Exploring a rich thriving life

 I savor the gift to continue here
Living my life as it teaches new lessons
After  experiencing so many kind hearts 
Tending me after my recent knee surgery
I know the Greenbriar is truly my home

And as my son says, we'll always be family
No matter the place we call home

    Still… It cannot be easy!
    So glad you are on the mend and feel at home where you are!

  2. Oh wow that’s a big change, and I can hear that there is both sad and happy in there for you. Does that mean your grandson will be far away as well?

      Thanks for understanding what’s in my heart. My son says he didn’t expect his sons to come back to Cleveland even if he stayed here. But we will always have family get togethers of some sort.

    This puts your last two posts in better context ~ definite sadness, but also the happiness and hope knowing these are the moments to make us strong and life a bit more rich. From my experience living so far away from family and those I love, is it makes get together incredible ~ more shared experience and love than otherwise imagined. To happy days ahead 🙂

      Dalo, your response means a lot to me. I know we will still get together and it will be wonderful, but the sadness lingers. Partly I think because I don’t know how my knee will respond to travel. The challenge will enliven me when it comes. 🙂
