Open Doors and Opportunities

     We live in a world where opportunities are viewed as open doors.  There is no law that says you have to walk through that open door though.  Maybe the glimpse that you see on the other side isn’t appealing.  And it has nothing to do with hard work.  It has more to do with your  goals and the changes that you know life will bring. Just because that door is open does not mean that you need to jump through it.

It might not be the right door,  or opportunity for you. Patience is a virtue and one that is hard one and should be valued as much as hard work and determination.  Wait for the right door,  it will be there,  I promise.

Mustn’t Grumble

     Just wait 10 minutes and the weather will change.  I have been waiting all week for this rain and dreary weather to go away, to no avail.  The poor New England Meteorologists might as well be on a constant dismal loop.  “The weather will be rainy and chilly again today,  Monday,  Tuesday,  Wednesday,  Thursday… Oh wait we might get a tiny bit of sun on Friday.  But Saturday will be dreary again,  and Mothers Day.. Well that is a good day for letting mom sleep.  Finally the sun will make an appearance on Monday!!!
     By Monday I will be wrinkled and damp and ready to float away.  I know we need the rain, we have been so dry that we have been under a fire warning.  But did the rain really need to come all in the same week?
     Everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it.  We just grumble and whine. 
     But I for 1 feel that this forecast sure is something to whine about. !! 🌪️🌫️🌨️⛈️

Roots & Wings

     On Saturday Kyle and Kacie went to her High School Senior Prom.  She was absolutely GORGEOUS,  she looked like the embodiment of a princess.  Just glowing and smiling from ear to ear.  As I watched both of them get dressed and ready,  I couldn’t help but feel so proud and yet emotional at the same time.

     At one point in time I was adjusting Kyle’s vest and tie because they weren’t straight.  He pulled away and said “what are you doing Mom?,  I said I am fixing you, you aren’t straight.”  He countered with “I’m an adult,  I pay my own taxes,  leave me be”!  I finished straightening him and walked away giggling.

     He may be an adult in his eyes,  and yes he does pay his own taxes.  But he will always be my son.  No matter how old he is. Roots and Wings,  the ability to give your children a strong foundation,  yet at the same time give them the ability to fly away.
