“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.
