Joining Lisa-Jo Baker at A Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday

Today’s prompt: Change



Or not.

Change anticipated. Then not materialized.

Woke up this morning realizing that the change we had dreamed of in our family was not going to happen. We would not be adding 2 extra plates at the table. We would not be strapping 2 extra car seats in to the van. We would not be making up 2 new beds. We would not be attending school open house or putting the rest of life on hold in order to bond.

Life continues the same.

We will do our regular amount of grocery shopping. We will continue in our regular fall routine of soccer games and church attendance and outings with other home school friends. On the outside our life will look unchanged.

But if you look deeper into our hearts, you will see a change.

  1. Yes, you are forever changed. Painfully perhaps, but in the big picture it is a beautiful change. You will forever be a better person for having loved another. I hope that you give yourself time to grieve, because a loss is a loss, no matter the cause. Blessings.
