This morning my youngest daughter, Susan, left on the first leg of her move to California, where she will open a new chapter in her life. A new job, a new unknown-as-yet-to-her state to live in, some long-time friends, as well as new friends await her. She has been visiting with us here in Virginia since she left Florida two weeks ago and it’s been a wonderful visit.

Transitions this large are not always easy, are often bittersweet, require much courage, and yet from my own experience, bring new opportunities as well as abundant new growth. Sue has been planning this for many months and she is ready. Readier than I, as a matter of fact, yet I know her decision is solid and good.
So, as she starts her travels on these new roads of her journey, my heart feels so close to her. She doesn’t know it right now, but I travel in the truck cab with her, watching the miles pass by and my mind engaged in conversation with her.
I miss you already, sweet daughter. Be safe, be well, get rested, and be open to what resonates within your heart as you encounter opportunities that will enrich your life. Shalom, and so much love, Mom
