the spinning wheel

I have been quiet lately, as I have been undergoing a challenging transition.  Amidst the tears and the pain, I know that I am growing and becoming. My life is going to be entirely different than I imagined, and my future is unknown.  But today the sun is shining, the birds are chirping gently, and despite the emotional storms of the past few months the morning breeze is gentle, as though the breath of a higher power is caressing me gently with the soothing reminder: yes, Katy, you will be okay.

And I know I will be.

Life cycles forward.  There is comfort in this spinning wheel of destruction, death, rebirth. It is the natural order of everything. We break down so we can begin again.  We fall so we can fly.

    The phoenix must die in flames to be reborn from its ashes. Painful, scary, yet necessary for rebirth, and required, apparently, in order to take wing again. Sending healing blessings for this difficult time.

    I am so grateful to you…you were one of the first people to visit and comment on my reflections on my Mom’s death on my blog, A Swift Current. I was hesitant at the time to read other writing on the topic but I have now transitioned the blog to focus of my Mom’s struggle with dementia. I look forward to following Born By A River. Thank you for being there for me as I embarked on these tough discussions in this very public arena. With best regards, Hallie Swift/ A Swift Current

    Your insight is powerful….in the midst of pain it’s often hard to see that something beautiful is coming. But, you are so right…you will fly again and your wings will be stronger and more agile than ever before.
