Memorial.

I haven't frequented the subject of God here. However, not for lack of feeling or focus.

My heart is full of gratitude for a God who not only knows who I am, but is as invested in my eternal outcome as I am.

At work today I spent about an hour (and about 2 hours yesterday) updating the status on expired listings, a very monotonous job to say the least. I don't know how many times I clicked my mouse on the words,

"Change Current Status."


So easy. Two clicks and a "Control V" to enter today's date and done. The listing goes away.

In terms of the heart, it's not quite so simple, but sometimes just as quick.

One day you're attached and the next day you're not. Or rather, one day I was attached and the next day I wasn't. Nearly two years to the day. Life is so strange!

It takes a lot of courage to follow your "gut." Courage because it's scary.
Courage because it's painful.

Sometimes love means letting go. It's so hard...

But, when the next day brings Peace, The peace that passeth all understanding, well it's hard to deny a feeling like that. As if the Universe was confirming what my insides already knew.

"Love is the most difficult and
dangerous form of courage. Courage is the most
desperate, admirable and noble kind of love."


And so I say farewell. Farewell to a chapter of my life that I will never regret and will always look back on fondly.
I am a better person because of you.

~Always...
