January 2015 Letter: Dear New Beginning

Dear New Beginning,

You smell like crisp, fresh sheets and you feel just the same–delicious, exciting and relaxing all at the same time. You give me permission to hope again. 

You speak of possibilities, and your words, they make their way all the way to the middle of me where I let them sit. And these little words, they begin to grow into a tangible dream, and then a plan. And the plan, it has pictures attached to it, and feelings, and I like it. I like it very much. It makes my heart jump around a bit, and it makes me giddy for a future that I begin to taste a bit, like a brand new baby plant laden with promises.

I am glad you come around every so often.

You are like a ray of sunshine on a grey day, and you warm my soul in places where it was a bit numbed by the beautiful ordinary of everyday life that I love so, but sometimes dulls my passion.

And you are a bit scary, making me apprehensive because you are so unknown. And I wonder if I am up to the task and I don’t want to disappoint you. But I know deep inside that as I embrace you, I will grow and change and that it is all good.

Dear new beginning, thank you for all that you are to me.

Barbara

  3. I am ready for a new beginning, too! It comes with all the feelings you describe…excitement, warmth, apprehension, fear. But I have hope for the new day dawning! God always delivers, although it’s in His own time.
