Haiku My Heart Friday: Life Changes

Nothing stays the same
Life changes, we move forward
One day at at time.

After 40 years on this lake, our beloved family cottage has been sold.  We have lots of wonderful memories of happy times with family and friends during our time here.  It was a difficult decision to make but a necessary one.  We'll be spending the next few weeks cleaning out, getting everything ready for the new owner before the mid-November closing date.
And so we turn towards the future, and whatever new adventures might lie ahead.

Wonderful haiku about change and photo of the memories you have to warm your heart each day ~ lots of hugs to you as you 'let go' of a place you love.

dear cynthia,
your wooden dock stirs so many memories in my summer heart too. letting go can be our greatest challenge. may the new adventures that unfold speak straight to your heart with joy and fulfillment.

I'm so happy you have such fond memories to hold in your heart… and in truth every day can be a new adventure if we look at life this way. What a beautiful place, letting go in autumn seems exactly right.

I've experienced letting go just like MMT described. Here's to memories yet to be lived.
