Right now my life is transitioning. As we help one of my sons and his friend prepare to go off to BYU-ID, I am aware that all my family is transitioning right now. My husband and I will soon be empty nesters, my oldest is job hunting and just moved his little family, and my youngest is in the Provo MTC learning Russian for a major change of life in October, when he goes on an LDS Mission. Both my husband and I have work challenges right now, with possible changes of one kind or another in the future. I guess it's a bit crazy and stressful at times.
I keep reminding myself that I need to look forward with faith. So far I'm faring pretty well, but I expect to crash after the boys leave home. Busy, busy...I must keep busy! Move ahead...push forward! My composition of life is in a development section right now, and lots of musical material is being played with; inversions, extensions, unexpected pairings, etc., with a few moments of silence. For dramatic effect, or to breathe?! Soon it will come to a climax. Will the climax be traumatic, joyful, a relief....what? And then life goes on.
So I try to connect spiritually and hold on. Right now life is a fast ride through new territory....a lot for this aging woman!! I do not know what I would do without the spiritual guidance I have felt....that still, small voice (feeling) that stabilizes, comforts, and directs me at times. I have experiences many "small" miracles.
Next week I should have some quiet time...one of those silences. Hopefully I will be able to initiate some changes, including my Etsy shop!
