Getting READY to GO!

My office, last night, in major disarray

Good Morning, God!

We FLY OFF FOR BOSTON TODAY!

YIKES! I must say, God, I am not the calm, cool traveler. Hmm, maybe I’m not the calm cool stay-at-home person either. Oh well.

I am excited to be going and very thankful that we don’t leave for the airport until the afternoon. Still to do is buying a new hose and setting up my automatic watering system for all my plants.

And, of course, seeing my Mom!  She is saying how much she will miss me!  I told her RIGHT!  AND THAT IS HOW MUCH I WILL MISS YOU — SO EAT and TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF!!!!  Ah, God, that is one of the HARD things about leaving. It foreshadows other leavings.

It’s funny, God, how when we are young we don’t “notice” transitions. Or rather, transitions are filled with excitement as “growing up” milestones. So, now are we “growing down?”  Hmmm. Yes, No and maybe!  Working in a retirement residence I see transitions that mean accommodating to physical problems and other losses. But, I can also see that in the very adaptation itself there is real growth UP.

Ah, God, this Great Gift of Life is one darn Transition after another. And I have two thoughts: the first is that Life is such a BIG GIFT that it can be “diminished” in many ways — and Life is still a Gift. My second thought is that adaptation and change are not “mistakes” but the “game plan.”

So, onward I go, God. Hoping to appreciate that often reluctant adaptation known as COPING. Putting my Life in Your Hands and in Your Loving Context really helps! Thank YOU, God!

Story teller,
