listen


“If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments.”


- Anne Morrow Lindbergh







Good morning. Today is the day I give it all away. Certainly I will be compensated, but the money- the reward will not come from an amount of dollars and cents, but in a value that cannot be measured. I wept last night before retiring, feeling oh so beside myself with doubts and fears of what ifs and what will be...I cannot know and yet I find this morning- the courage from a prayer- a request for simply peace of mind.


The birds greeted me this morning, robins in the road and a nuthatch hopping down the side of the great Maple in the front yard.

"Ah!" I said, "A nuthatch."

That is enough, a sign for me that all is well, all will be well...


May this home find the good stewards that I have tried to be, may the new owners find in time- the peace that I have come to know. May the sunrises and sunsets speak to them as they have called to me daily- coloring my soul, filling me with wonder. May all who enter here find the joy I have found, may they come and go with a happiness that encompasses every one they meet, may the silent poetry of this place ring in the ears that might learn to listen for such things.

.

May love and only love- continue to grow here.


Amen.

Everything is going to be just fine. But I don't blame you for crying, I'd do it too :) Good luck, let me know if you need anything.

Love, Rhi

It's a done deal, we toasted it with good tequila, and good friends, who know you, love you and will always have your back wether you are in Maine or Missouri. I am so excited for you and your upcoming adventures, which I know will be most excellent.
Love you girl

It is my utmost thanks that I offer for everyone's kindness. This transition is one of heaviness, excitement and as always, wonder. I could not, would not have it any other way. More to come on this adventure...
Take care.

"We grow primarily through our challenges,
especially those life-changing moments when we begin to recognize
aspects of our nature that make us different from the family
and culture in which we have been raised."

~ Caroline Myss

I use Caroline's words they are better then mine.
good luck to you and yours.
