As I am finished with my packing, I look around the house, noticing how quiet it seems.  I have been packing the dishes and pictures, placing them into boxes for weeks now.  I haven’t noticed the silence in the house until all is packed and emptied, from the home we once shared and loved as a family.  

Our home is now vacant, like my heart.  It is hard to say goodbye.  However, it is time to move forward.  As one book closes, another begins.  I now realize that this chapter of my life has come to a close.  I have anticipation wondering what the next chapter will bring.  Life is like a book, you are sad to finish one, but apprehensive to begin another.  Will this book be as good as the last?  New beginnings are everywhere, embrace them with faith and an open heart.
