Mapping New Frontiers...

Thanks, Wee Woman, my dear friend. I am so glad you got my meaning.

Life turns on a dime.

It's odd, the little things that have grown to mean so much to me lately. Kind words I once took for false flattery, I now take at face value. My own natural nature, that I once saw as weakness, I now see as one of my many strengths. I am working to embrace the little things more.

Losing my sweet friend from church has me going through so many emotions lately. I am so sad that she is gone, but she lived her life with such energy and dignity, it was a full, life well lived. It has me wondering if anyone would say the same for me when I am gone.To that end, I am making some serious decisions in my own life.

We only get one chance to walk this path. If we keep looking back, we miss out on what is happening around us now. We also miss the little markers along the path that show us which fork to take.

I feel like I am coming to one of those forks in the road. For the first time, I feel like I am paying attention to the markers, the signs once obscured by life's tree branches and such that I would not have seen even a year ago.

Changes are scary things. They are those things not on the map. We have to draw our own new maps, and mark those new things down so that those that follow have less trouble following their path on the journey.

I feel like Miss Edie would be sorely disappointed in my whining over the things I feel missed me. So, I will strive to keep going forward, crawling if I must, but pushing forward.

In the end, I want this last phase of my life to be well lived. I want to leave behind a new map of the journey.
