Today was a day of endings...and beginnings. First, a funeral for the woman who I wrote about on Day #291. While it was a loving tribute to a grand southern belle, it also somehow felt as though the beginning chapters of my married life were closing.
Today was also the ending of my husband’s work. I wrote about his “retirement” dinner yesterday, but today was officially his last day, which also ended our being separated by distance, living in two houses and two places.
So we celebrated with dear friends, focusing on the beginnings: our upcoming adventure in the West, the next chapters of our married life being together in one house, and soon the beginning of a new decade for him with a new number in the front.
One thing to say, life is never dull! As the old saying goes, when one door closes, another one opens!! You just never know what God has in store!
