In Transition

When I started this new blog a few weeks ago, I wanted to begin telling my story from the center of my heart, working outward. The last three weeks have been so challenging I’ve hardly had time to write.

My oldest son is graduating tomorrow from high school and we are giving him a party afterwards. Some of our family members are coming in to visit. My do-it-all husband has been working feverishly to finish up the addition to our house that he started over a year ago.

So everything is changing at our house, and sometimes change (even for the better) can be uncomfortable.

These roses are my neighbor, Loretta’s. They are so beautiful, and they remind me that things will be rosey again.
The weekends will go back to being a time of rest and relaxation in the mountains or along the creek banks.

And very soon we will be out paddling in our kayaks again or biking the nature trails near here. And I will be able to lay down my paint brush and pick up my camera again.

Happy Weekend!!

I hate change, even, as you say, when its for the better. Have a wonderful grad week, be proud!

My husband calls it nurturing friends and family and "upkeep" on the homestead. It will get better and you'll have some fresh idea stemming from the activity. God bless you.

Change is always a challenge. Quite often when we are challenged we finally understand what we are made of - the flowers a beautiful :)

Teresa, Happy weekend to you too and many thanks for your great words on my blog. I needed them so much and they sure did help lots.
Have a great weekend. And ask your neighbour if you can take some of those roses inside, they would look lovely in a nice vase.
