We will be flying out this morning. It is time.... but I hate to go back on so many different levels.
Yesterday we packed so much into ten hours that my head is still spinning. Coffee crawl ... Excellent great time. The Ferris wheel, a ferry ride to Bainbridge Island, a coffee cupping and literally ten miles of walking. two trains, a bus trip and the best vegan pizza ever. Yeah it was a full day.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
