No matter if the way is rocky or slippery with moss
life goes on.
We must keep climbing, moving forward.
Some days are rough and then out of the rocky way
a flower blooms.
The blush of a new bloom leads the way.
It shares the beauty just in front of us.
I have been rather quiet this week, contemplating the end of the year
and the beginning of a new one.
By now some thought for the future year would have formulated in my mind.
For some reason this has been slow in coming.
I wrote not long ago about being open to the new year,
but I just couldn't be open.
Just the word scared me.
But I have been paying attention
and finally it came.
My word for 2019 will be Trust.
Trust reminds me of a free fall.
I know it has something to teach me.
So I will be open to Trust and learn as the year goes along.
Happy New Year, dear friends!
Now there is one more Monday in 2018
and a tea quote will be here for one more time.
