Scratching the Itch
Today was a day of gathering with my co-workers for a very intense workshop on grieving because the home where we work is being sold and we are all losing our jobs. The residents will lose their home that some have lived in for more than two decades. The sisters who have run this home with Love and Compassion are retiring.Our family here is being torn apart. Many endings. Confusion. Pain.Uncertainty. Anger.Sadness.
And yet in the midst of all this , there is faith. Faith that it will all work out for the highest good of all. Faith that the women wil get the homes that are best for them. I also received a job offer today(nice birthday present-yes it’s my birthday) which will start in another month or so and I accepted.
In closing our session todayI picked two words from a pile that represent the gifts that spirit will give me:Fortitude and Perseverence.Right away I thought of what is ahead: not just endings but new adventures. And I thought of how important it is to me to respond to my heartsong, that urge from within that calls me to be creative. Scratching the itch.
Spring is coming with it’s promise of new beginnings and abundant life. I am a little sad, a lot tired but excited and want to wish my blogger friends many blessings in your lives as we all journey forward – you are so inspiring. Keep scratching your itches. 🙂
