#260 a time for every event under heaven

A fallen leaf, still flaming red but soon to be trampled down and forgotten. For me today, this picture spoke about endings and the transience of life. A long, and the most important, phase in my life has come to an end. My daughter has flown off the nest.

Just as the cycles of nature, also changes in life are inevitable, and even if welcome, oh, what mixed feelings they create! Luckily, this sad leaf holds in it the promise and reassurance of a new spring. Similarly, children may be out of your sight, but never out of your heart!

    Mine are older – but parenting doesn’t end with the first flight! It is nice to see them grow and establish themselves as adults.
