:: Change

Things change. It's a fact of life. Like the line in "Finding Nemo" where the dad promises he won't let anything ever happen to Nemo. Ridiculous. Things happen. Things change. Without change there would be no living.

That doesn't mean it's not difficult sometimes. Embracing changes can be hard, even the good ones. 

We're going through changes around our house. Our daughter recently got a full-time job and moved into her first apartment. Her bedroom's not "hers" anymore. It's the guest room now. That's going to take a bit of getting used to, but I'm embracing the fun of a bit of redecorating while she's embracing some new and much deserved freedom.

Our son is going to college here in town this year and will be living at home. Mostly a good thing and nice having him around, but it is a struggle sometimes for mom and dad and a 21 year old to figure out boundaries.

Alan is moving from grad school classes to practicum and internship. Not a huge shift, but a shift nonetheless.

And me. I'm not sure. More writing time I hope. Crafting. A new style of homemaking as the demographics change around here. Who knows, maybe a part time job is in my near future.

Change is unavoidable. I choose to embrace it and assume positive thoughts as I look ahead.

  1. I'm going through some of these changes too. My elder daughter has left home and is working abroad and my younger one is leaving for college in a few weeks. It is indeed a mixed blessing!
