it's a a rare day...

...when I finally give up on something. But today, after looking at a situation from many different angles, with an open heart and mind, with dedication, love and endless agonizing...I have finally said, 


I just need to set this sad situation down by the side of the road in my journey and walk away. Sigh.

I am blessed that my life is full in so many other ways, I know I will be OK. I still have my church in the woods.

And I know that sometimes letting go of one thing makes room for other things...


  1. Hope everything turns out ok for you.

  2. Good for you, Marm.
    I'm glad you've finally learned to let go of a few things, especially when you're picking up so many great new opportunities!

    Thoreau warned of the unexamined life. I do not want to live an unexamined life. Sometimes the examination is not easy, but it helps keep me true to my moral compass...
