Honor the Ending

The journey of a year is drawing to a close. Cherish the moments, all of them, even the ups and downs. Cherish the places you've visited, the people you've seen. Say good-bye to those whose journeys have called them someplace else.  Know you can always call them back by thinking loving thoughts.  Know all those you love will be there for you when you need them most.  Honor the lessons you've learned, and the people who helped you learn them.  Honor the journey your soul mapped out for you. 
 Trust all the places you've been. 

Look back for a moment.  Reflect in peace.  Then let this year draw to a close. 
Take time to honor this ending---though it's never really the end.
Tomorrow a new adventure will begin.

I want to thank everyone for your prayers and support during this difficult holiday season
and a peaceful, safe and healthy New Year.

Hello Jen
My dear friend, you have had an extraordinary Christmas this year and my thoughts have been with you on many occasions.
Remembering the good times with your family that has passed on will help ease the grief.
Looking forward to some new adventures with you this year.

Lovely Jenn! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I always appreciate when people are able to write well enough to do that, but especially at difficult times such as you've just gone through.

May 2011 bring you peace and joy.
