choices and changes ~

the shadow of a idea,
the swirling whisper of a dream,
the absence of a person,
and suddenly
I was voicing a thought over the kitchen table the next morning.

the dear one stopped walking
and we conversed for a bit before I had to rush off.
(but when I left, it was with a smile)

i am learning to thrive // not just survive.
i am learning to serve Him // not just be around them.

(i gave her my two weeks notice yesterday afternoon)

and tonight as the long weekend stretched before me
my arms wrapped around my legs and early fall wind in my hair
tipping my head back to drink in the sight of so many stars
