Though sad in respect to the dismantling of family, so to speak, he and I are solid in moving in our own direction. We in no way intend to turn anyone aside but we won't martyr ourselves or put our dreams or journey aside to accommodate others. Everything will turn out as it is meant to be.
There are definitely times, when the moments and adventures of my younger friends and their children make me feel envious. How different might the time I was raising our children have been if these women were in my life??? It does create moments of melancholy but I can not reside there. I see and appreciate (oddly enough) and move on.
I am looking at 2014 as a defining year. Listening for the siren song that leads Mark & I to our place. The excitement of the adventurous journey, arriving in exactly the right place, loving it and knowing gratitude.
