There are places I remember...
Some forever not for better...
Some have gone and some remain...
All these places have their moments...
With lovers and friends I still can recall...
Some are dead and some are living...
In my life I've loved them all.
I've heard some people equate change to loss, but I think change usually means opportunity/hope/new beginnings/time for redefining. There is no doubt that there has been a lot of change around here in the last two years and it seems to have seeped into every facet of our lives...
Here it is almost December and I'm just now talking about the beautiful
time of year when the leaves turn and the temps CHANGE. But its beautiful fiery reds, burnt oranges, and bright
yellows are everywhere and I can't help but take note.
Our house is over 60 years old and the window glazing was crumbling, wooden trim work was rotting, paint was chipping, and the new addition still sat unpainted. It was time to address a few things we wished to CHANGE.
*** The boys CHANGE daily. They are like sponges soaking everything in. In just 21 months I don't recognize the babies my boys used to be!
I was tired of my drab, looks-like-I-didn't-shower ponytails, so it was time for a CHANGE...from long to chopped.
my favorite CHANGE to talk and laugh about is that from
'loves-to-party-20 something' to
Dancing on booths at Metro - Missy's Birthday, 2007
(1 marriage, 0 kids)
Chatting around a table at Metro - Girls' Night, 2011
(4 marriages, 6 kids)
I'd say change is good. It's growth. And nothing is permanent...just a time for every purpose under the sun.
