SOL 13/15 Open Doors and Closed Chapters

Screen Shot 2015-03-03 at 6.15.38 PMKids grown and moved away.

Oh how I dreaded that day.

The day arrived, tears were shed;

Hearts were broken.

But time passed.

Doors opened and freedoms are felt.

With the reopening of doors,

A long lost friend is found.

He’s been there all along,

Forever strong, at my side,

Always.

Slowly realizing and savoring,

The reality that, as chapters close

and doors (re)open; life can be good.

Filled with the rekindled love of

An old friend. I didn’t realize how much I missed him,

And happy I am to have him back.

  1. Isn’t it funny how changes occur and new opportunities open up that we didn’t explore before. Love the way you describe the empty nest facet of life.

    • It is turning into an unexpected pleasure. I don’t know why I didn’t anticipate it! And wonder why I was so scared of it. I guess our kids’ hold on our hearts is just that strong. Thanks 🙂
